History of Host Churches 

SPENCER 

The Spencer Baptist Church was organized April 18, 1926, with ap- 
proximately two liundred charter members. The first building for wor- 
ship was erected in 1928. 

Spencer Church has been evangelistic throughout its history. Since 
its organization through 1965, 1,693 peo,ple have ]>eeii added toi the church 
fellowship through baptism alone. Thirt>-nine, or more, people have gone 
into full time Christian service from this churcli since its organization, 
and $860,377 has been given to and through its ministries for the King- 
dom work. 

Pastors who have served the church since its organization have been : 
M. W. Huntley, J. A. Brock, Joe Parsons, C. C. Matheny, Felix R. 
Wagoner; W. F. Woodall and the present pastor, A. B. Bum,garner, 
who came to the church in November, 1960. 

In the early forties the church plant was enlarged by the addition of 
twenty new Sunday School rooms, and by the renovation of the sanc- 
tuary increasing its seating capacity to 500 peorlc. In 1952 'a recreation 
building with kitchen facilities was erected to serve the needs of the 
growing church. In 1954 a new Educational building was constructed 
with a seating capacity of 300 people. 

Within the last fcv,' years a new, modern Educational plant has been 
added to the present building, replacing the old one which had become 
inadequate for the present needs of the rapidly growing church . 



BETHEL 

Bethel Baptist Cliurch was organized in 1847 in EHenboro, N. C, 
with nineteen cl.iirter members. The original building was constructed 
of logs. In 1881 the log building was replaced with a frame building. 

Bethel church was originally a meml)er of the Broad River Association, 
but later transferred its membership to the Kings Mountain Association. 
In 1890 the Sandy Run Association was org^anized in this church of which 
it is now a member, being one of the charter members of the Sandy Run 
Association. 

The third house of worship, a brick building, \vas erected in 1921. 
This building served the needs of the congregation until 1958 when the 
present, modern building was erected including a modern Sunday School 
plant. This is one of the growing, progressive churches of the Sandy Run 
Association. 

The following pastors have served the church through its long life of 
service to the Kingdom: Elder William Flarrill, Dove Pannell, William 
McSwain, J. H. Yarboro, T. J. Campbell. J. J. Jones, A. A. McSwain, 
A. P. Hollifield, Z. D. Harrill, G. M. Webb, G. W., Rollins, B. M. Bndges, 
R. E. Eimerick, B. M. liamrick, 1). J. Hunt, 1. D. Harrill, C. E. Taylor, 
W. W. Davidson, C. F. Eaughlin, Charles Hamrick, and the present 
pastor, Harold Brown.

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 

1966 — "The Year of the Bible" — commemorates the American Bible 
Society's 150 years of service in supplying God's Word to the world. 
The Bible, which is our purpose for existence, is 'ageless. Its message is 
as relevant for today as it was in 1816, and the Society is convinced that 
it will continue to speak witli power, persuasiveness and truth in the 
unfolding space age — in every age. 

Since its founding the Society has carried forward a dynamic and 
effective program of translation, production and distrilnition of the Holy 
Scriptures. 

1. TRANSLATION. At present, counsel, supervision and financial assist- 
ance are being given more than 3,000 translators in 150 countries in trans- 
lating and revising the Scriptures into many of tlie world's languages 
and dialects. At least one complete Book of the Bible has now been 
translated into more than 1.250 languages and dialects. 

2. PUBLICATION. Scriptures in unique sizes and formats are being 
produced here and overseas to meet varied needs and uses. 

3. DISTRIBUTION. With special emphasis on Reading and Use. By 
sale and donation (with particular consideration for the blind and those 
in need of special ministry,) God's word is Sipread abroad through the 
Society's agencies and distributors, churclies, Christian workers, mis- 
sionaries, pastors, cam.pus ministers and evangelists. 

The Society's w(n-k is made possible solely by voluntary gifts from 
churches and iuflividuals. The single purpose of the American Bible 
Society is to help in the sowing and sharing of God's word throughout 
the world.

ASSOCIATIONAL BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

The Brotherhood began in 1907 as the Laymen's Missionary Movement 
with the pui-poses of bringing men face to face with their religious 
obligations, to enlist them in the affairs of Christ's kingdom, and to 
stimulate them to a greater consecration to God in world-wdde evange- 
lism. "It urged men to pray daily, study diligently, plan wisely, serve 
zealously, and give generously that the kingdom of Christ might pros- 
per . . ." 

The program of the Brotherhood in North Carolina is designed to de- 
velop a strong missionary movement of Baptist laymen. A definitei pro- 
gram of missionary education for men and boys is underway. Some 
of the Brotherhoods and RA's are already engaged in the enlistment of 
men and boys who arc on the church roll to witness to the lost, to 
give of their time, talent, and possessions through the church. 

We are glad to report some very worthwhile activities in the Brother- 
hood work in our association: 

The RA's under the leadership of our associational leader. Rev. James 
Estep, have had a fine year. Last fall a RA Conclave was held at Chase 
High School. That afternoon the boys met on the play ground and 

31 



Minnies of vSandy Knn ]5ai>list Association 



played l)all. This a'/iivity was fdllowcd wiili a "hot do.L;" supp-er in the 
school cafeteria. At the close of the meal, a L;ncst speaker showed slides 
and spoke to ns. 

The Associational llrotliL-rliood held three very fine meetings this 
past year. The first meeting; was at the vSandy Mush Church, the second 
at the Floyd's Creek Ikiptist Cliin-cli, and the third at the Caroleen Bap- 
tist Church.

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS REPORT 

The associational missions Avork in the Sandy Run Association is 
mostly educational and promotional. However, much the association 
may be prepared to help the churches, it doesn't mean much without 
cooperation. That is apparent in much of the associational program. It 
has been evident in our vSunday School work, in our Training Union 
work, in our Broth crhfxxl work, and in our simultaneous revivals. 

Hovv-ever. ther^ are some tilings that have been encouraging. Our 
associational WAIU has been moving on vigorously. The associational 
deacons' school was fairly well attended. Thirty-two churches (just half 
the churches) were rei)rescnted by 198 pastors and deacons the first 
night, and twenty-seven churches were represented by 137 pastors and 
deacons the second night. Al'^^o, tlie financial side of our program has 
been encouraging. 

During the year our associational missionary has visited in 130 services,

propriate. Likewise, we arc so grateful to the officers of our associational 
organizations for their good help.

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

Under the impact of the life, ministry and teachings of Christ and 
under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, North Carolina Baptists, eighty- 
one years ago launclied a Christian ministry of child care. This has 

32 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



grown coinsiderably and is wKlely recognized for its qualities of service 
and pioneering spirit. Sons and daughters of the Children's Homes are 
scattered throughout the world. They are actively engaged in all walks 
of life and are making a significant contribution to the uplift of man- 
kind as a result of their early Christian trainiiig made possii)le by North 
Carolina Baptists and other friends. 

As we contiue toi build upon foundations already laid, special attention 
is being given certain areas of child care. Prospects are encouraging 
for a home for children in the western part of the state more adequately 
to serve the needs of our peoiple who live west of the Blue Ridge Moun- 
tains. Constant attention is being given to moirc eliective ways of meeting 
the highly specialized needs of children coming out of broken and in- 
adequate home situations. 

We have a large number of .good Christian homes for the care of 
foster children. More are needed in all sections O'f the state. Foster 
homes serve children of all ages and are of particular advantage for 
some who have special needs. Foster home parents may be of varidng 
ages and circumstances in life. Coiipiis with or without children of their 
own who have an abundance of love find this to be a challenging and 
rewarding opportunity of Christian service. 

Sincere appreciation is expressed to all who have, in any way, helped 
to support our child care ministry. AYe are indeed grateful for increasnig 
income through the Cooperative Program. Last year's Thanksgiving 
Offering is approaching three hundred fifteen thousand dollars ($315,- 
000.00) and is the largest erver. Through estate planning and the making 
of Christian wills an increasing number of individuals and families are 
investing in present and future generations of boys and girls who are 
in need of the services of the Baptist Children's riomes. Roger Williams 
is devoting full time to working with our Baptist people in this area, 
and he or other members of the staff will be happy to assist anyone 
wishing to explore this held of Christian stev/ardshi|P. 

We covenant witli you to face the future as we have the past and to 
ofier Christian nurture to (distressed children in the Name of the Lord 
Jesus Christ.

BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

This has been a good year in the Baptist Foundation work, and it is 
very encouraging to have the cooperation of tiie pastors in furnishing 
the names of individuals who may be interested in the Foundation; they 
have invited speakers from the Foundation to their churches on various 
occasions; many have given of their time in discussion, programs, and 
by various ways of helping to inform our fine people of North Carolina 
of the many blessings received from the work. 

Assets of the Foundation have increased during the past year and at 
the last accounting, around December, the total assets of the Foundation 
had reached approxinv,.tely one million dollars including our real estate. 
Many of our people are setting up miemoriai funds, trust agreements, 
annuity agreements, and are using other services provided by the Bap- 
tist Foundation. The l^'oundation is organized in such a manner that we

BAPTISF HOSPITAL REPORT 

Our Baptist IT xv^^cd and Medical Schor,l are a center healing ior 

body, mind and spirit, a center of training' of medical personnel and 

Christian woTkers, and a center of scientific research for the advance- 
ment of medical care. 

Without a vast ariiount of medical research, there wcaild be no licart 
surgery today by which lives are saved in our La.ptist Hospital almost 
every w'eek ; and the ^aine would be true of abrost every new method 
of treating- us Vvdien we are sick. Vv'itliout school. ■ for the training of 
doctors, nurses, technicians and others, tliere soon w^oidd be no skilled 
persons in our liosp^Lals or in our communities .o care for us when 
illness comes. Without a sialf of highly train::! :,nd experienced spe- 
cialists and a vast amount of expensive specialized equipment, our 
Baptist Hospital could not offer the highly skid.ed medical care which 
is available to us wdien serious illness strikes and a fine medical center 
is needed. Anotlier very importLint fact is that the slcilled medical care of 
our Hospital is made available to people who ne-d it and cannot pay for 
it. These imiportant services are the work of our M'edical Center m 
Winston- Salem. 

The kind of medical care provided by our Ho5r;tal is very expensive, 
and the Hospital has no chcice but to ask full paymenL of all who can 
pay. The Hospital has been spending in free care for our people far 
more than it receives from our IiLother's Day Ofi'erings, the Cooperative 
Program, and ad v.elfare agencies combined, ihis has caused the Hos- 
pital to run into deb-t the past tw^o- 3''ears and the same has been happening 
this year. Of coiirse, the Hospital simply cannot continue to op'crate 
this way. l:dcdicare is not going to change the situation greatly. 

It will be necessary for all our churches to prayerfuiiy consider the 
needs of our Hospital and to seek the generous support of every Bap- 
tist for our Hospital.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

Education that is conceived, and conducted in loyalty to Christ is 
Christian Education. It teaches that Jesus is the saviour of men and that 
His principles are the only hope for civilization. It seeks to infuse stu- 
dents with a passion to serve and not merely' to acquire. Christian Edu- 
cation teaches that briovvdedge is necessarv', but that tlie proper use of it 
is of far more value tlian "know-how." Baptists must answer the ques- 
tion, "Is this sort of education worth supporting?" 

In this day of scientific advances of a ve and sh.ock it is even more 
nnportant that all countries be rea' bed and instructed in Jesus' way of 
salvation. We nmst literally ieacli them to "practice" everything He 
taught us to practice. This requires vigorous and constant Christian 

34 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



teaching. It is possible now for one country out of harmony with Christ 
to destroy the rest of the world as we know it. The great discoveries 
now at the disposal of world powers may be used to obliterate us or to 
build a better world. The outcome of these instruments depend on the 
minds of the men who control them. It has become "Christ or chaos" 
in our generation. What ought we to do ? 

We believe that the answer is found in our willingness to "Teach 
all Nations" the principles of jesus. In Christian Education the student 
not only receives instruction in the arts and sciences, but also receives 
training in Christian living. Here is where our schools and colleges may 
play an important role along with our homes and churches. With Chris- 
tian homes, consecrated church leadership, devout school and college 
faculties, and Christ-centered emphasis throughout our Bajptist life 
we may achieve this much-needed goal. Without Christian teachers and 
leaders, it is impossible to have Christian Education. We must support 
financially all oi our schools and pray for God's guidance that we may 
have the Christian atmosphere necessary for Christian growth there. 
This should not be taken to mean that Baptists want inferior training, 
but that we want superior intellectual training with the emphasis on 
Christian living and service. 

We all should devote enough time to Bible study and communion with 
God that we might develop the right relationship to ourselves, our 
fellowman, and to God. It is the duty and privilege of each Christian, 
each church, and each educational institution to take an active part in 
promoting and developing Christian Education at home and abroad.

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

Many important issues are facing North Carolina Baptists. Churches 
are making decisions on the Eife and Work Curriculum, especially 
whether to use the Life and Work Sunday School lessons or the Uniform 
Eessons. For a period of at least six months, the RECORDER will run 
both lessons as a service to our churches. 

In our state, changing conditions are raising serious questions about 
the fate of almost every institution we support. In the near future Bap- 
tists will have to decide our future course in higher education and in 
our Social Service institutions, especially in view of increased govern- 
ment participation in the&e areas. The RECORDER will present the 
issues and possible choices open to us. 

In the Southeirn Baptist Convention, there is talk of a name change. 
The work of our Baptist colleges is being studied as never before. A 
great Crusade of the Americas is in the planning stages. All of us need 
to know about these developments. 

A drive is taking sliape in North Carolina for liquor-by-the-drink. 
The 1967 General Assembly will consider such proposals and Baptists 
need a dependable source of information so they can act when necessary. 
The RECORDER will give on-the-spot coverage. 



Instead of merely receiving this as a report, please take definite action

to see that the RECORDER soon v.oos to every family in y(.ur church 
mcmbershij). All of us know iliat llic KECORDEk is just as important 
as other literature which our churJies distri])ut(\ i: not more so. No 
other publication can take the place of the BIBLICAL RECORDER. 

In these inflationary times, it is rcfreshinu to have ^omething that 
is not out of reach financially. L'nder the Cliurch Ihul^et Plan, the 
RECORDER is available for $2 a year — the same price it was more 
than 100 years ago. Your church will be a stronger cliurch with every 
tamily receiving- our state paper each week. Don't delay this important 
decision, especially in view of the issues facing Xortli Carolina Baptists 
in the coming year.

CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS REPORT 

(Christian Action League) 

The traditional Baptist position in regard to cdcoholic beverages is 
one of total abstinence. This position is exprc : c 1 in tire following ex- 
cerpt from the Church Covenant: "We engage, therefor, ... To abstain 
from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks a beverage." This posi- 
tion is shared by many Christians of other (^nominations. The basis 
for it is found in the habit-forming destructiveness of beverage alcohol 
itself, and in various scriptural admonitions which include I Thessa- 
lonians 5 :22, which says "abstain from every form of evil." Statistics 
on crime broken homes, ruinefl lives, automobile a:cidents, and a multi- 
tude of other tragedies due to the use of beveraTe alcohol adequately 
support our Baptist position in this controversial matter. 

Once again, as messengers of this 1966 session of the Sandy Run 
Baptist Association, we affirm our settled belief that Christians should 
abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage. We 
urge Believers of all denominations to j(^in with us in. a positive program 
of Christian edr/.-ation in this area, designed to inform others of the 
inherent dangers of strong drink and to persuade them to unite with 
us in our stand. We express our approval and pledge our wholehearted 
support of the work of the Christian Action League, as it seeks to deal 
in a constructive Christian manner with this difficult problem.

EVANGELISM REPORT 

This seems to b,: the age of rci.ellion. People everyv.here are rebehing 
against constituted authority. Rioting moi)s cover the streets at night 
in our large cities, firing guns at random and throwing fire bombs with 
precision. Lawlessness seems to be the order of the day. Alan is be- 
wildered and dojped with despair. He searches for the answer but it 
seems to elude him. 

Do we have the answer? We can positively say we do have the answer. 

36 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



God's answer is in New Testament churches, preaching the Gospel of 
Jesus Christ, preaching both by precept and l)y example. We must be- 
come living epistles, demonstrating Christ's love and power through 
the working of the Holy Spirit. 

God's answer to the critics and persecutors of the Church has been 
the hot and holy fires of revival. From Pentecost to the last real revival 
in the local church, God's answer has been conclusive and complete. 

All of the churches in the Sandy Run Association had at least one 
revival during the past year and 36 churches had two revivals. The 
total number of baptisms reported for the year were 376 and additions 
by letter were 509 making a total of 885 additions during the year. 

Southern Baptists' attention is directed to the Crusade oif the Americas 
in 1969. Twenty-one countries are cooperating in the crusade. We must 
get ready. Our God is a God of planning and purpose. Now is the time 
to get every church committed to the crusade date for 1969. 

We shall continue with our calendar of evangelism month by month, 
including our annual simultaneous, individual church, and area revivals.

FOREIGN MISSION REPORT 

The FoT'cign iAIission Board has ne\'er enjoyed the advantageous 
position it has to-'ay. While tlie Burma field has been closed to Christian 
missionaries this year other fields have been opened and missionary 
apipointees now number almost 2,2C0. This indicates remarkable progress, 
but serves only to encourage our people to accept the challenge of 
Foreign Mission Secretary Cauthen to get 5,000 missionaries on the 
field at the earliest possible time. 

The use of the suwestions below will help to reach this goal of ex- 
panded missionary effort and bring even greater honor to our Lord : 

1. Eead your church to learn more about missions. 

a. Ask your pastor to preach on the missionary theme at least once 
a month, and commend h\n\ v/hen he does it. 

b. Try to lead your church to send THE COMMISSION to each 
resident family. If ten or more sul^scriptions are ordered at one 
time the cost is only $1 ,pcr year. This costs money, but is like 
the fertilizer the farmer use-., lie can t afford not to use fertilizer 
nor can your church afford to be without missionary information 

c. Free tracts on each of our missionary fields are available from the 
Foreign Mission Board (Box 6597, Richmond, Va.) Order the. 
number you can profitably use. 

d. Eead your church to estai)lish a prayer time in each service when 
you pray by name for the missionaries who have birthdays that 
day. This will be a source of power for our missionaries and a 
means of keeping the needs before the people. 



Minutes of Sandy \\\\n I'aptist Association 



2. Lead your cliurcli to supixirt missions. 

a. Churches, hke in(hvi(hials, must l)e good stewards. Are you sat- 
isfied with the amount of your church's income going to missions? 
Every church can give at lenst 10%. If your church can't how 

can 3^ou expect the memlxrs to tithe? 

b. Lead your church to agree to give some .percentage of all oflFer- 
ings through the Cooperative Program. Over half ($11,780,300) 
of the Foreign Mission Board's income for next year will come 
through the Cooperative Program. 

c. Help to stimulate sincere interest in the Week of Prayer for 
Foreign Missions in your church and encourage a generous ofTer- 

■ ■ ing — as their Christmas Gift to Christ. 

3. Pray for missions. Lead your chiu'ch to pray. Ask God to accept 
someone from your church as one of His modern day Apostles.

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 

The importance of the work being done through Home Missions can 
hardly be overestimated. Tt i^ in this ministry that Southern Baptists 
carry out the Great Commission in the homeland plus many outlying 
areas. 

In the direct missions department of the Home Mission Board 2,520 
missionaries have been appointed and are now serving. These mission- 
aries minister to more communities and individuals than ever before 
in the long history of the Home Mission ministry. Many new 
stations are opening up daily and hundreds in the ,past feAv years. 

In the homeland, these missionaries minister to the Chinese, Japanese, 
French, Italians, Russians, Spanish. Indians, Jews, Negroes, and the 
deaf in addition to serving these language groups, rescue missions are 
maintained in our cities. Thoroughout the Southern Baptist territory, 
Home Missions is doing a profitable pioneer work in establishing new 
churches and missions and are reaching hundreds for Christ. Thus the 
program of Home Missions, with redemption and hope, reaches into 
every state in the union. 

In response then to Dr. Rutledge's request, let us ,pray for Home 
Missions, while implementing our prayers with increased giving, and 
informing oair churches of the full work of the Home Mission Board 
urge upon them the need of participating actively in the fields of op- 
portunity promoted by the I lome Mission Board.

HOMES FOR THE AGING REPORT 

As we look back on the past year of life in our four Ba,ptist Homes for 
the Aging, we are reminded of the goodness of the Lord to us, and of 
His continued blessings upon the residents. 

Our homes have ministered to 172 deserving older men and women. 
All of these have been blessed by the love gifts of North Carolina Baptists, 
through the Special Day Offering received on the third Sunday of Feb- 
ruary each year, and through the share in the Cooperative Program. At 
least 85% have been benefited directl}- from these gifts. 

The Special Day offering for 1966 is at an all time high and looks as if 
it might be $100,000.00 for the first time. This is very good, and we are 
so grateful. Let us not forget that even though there has been a 5% in- 
crease in the offering from last year, costs have advanced by 7%. 

There have been fewer deaths this past year. Alany of the critically 
ill have been brought back to reasonably good health. The nursing care 
has been of the highest quality.

during the coming year. When this home is completed, Vv^e will be able 
to minister to 200 people At this time we have 170 people on the waiting- 
list.

CHURCH LIBRARIES OF THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE 

In the past church libraries had many problems. Problems that could 
be corrected, such as, poor organization, untrained personnel, no pro- 
vision in church budget, poor book selection, letc. As a result church 
librarians gave up and church members were not well informed. Sunday 
School teachers and other -church workers lacked for books and audio- 
visuals to use in their L^rowth in knowledge and development. 

The church library of today is dealing with people who are concerned. 
They are av/are of the fact that they have to keep up and keep ahead of 
a world which is demanding, commanding, and full of perplexities. 

The church library has resource materials to meet your need. If you 
are depressed or troubled, we have materials that will lift you up. If you 
want wisdom or relaxation, why not check in your church library? Many 
can testify to the help they have received. 

The future looks inviting. There are those who are just beginning and 
still need help from those who have the "know how." There are still church 
members who do not use the church library. Families need to become in- 
volved. Parents who bring children to the church library need help them- 
selves. 

The future is brighter for those who use their church libraries and 
continue to grow. 

If you have problems about yoiur church library why not contact one 
of the members of the Associational Church ^[yibrary Organization ? If 
we do' not knov/ the answer to your problem, we will try to help you 
find someone who does. 

We are happy to report w^e have organized two new libraries this year 
and have done much to help those who have asked for special help in 
some field or other.

COMMITTEE ON ORDINATIONS REPORT 

Our activities during the year were limited because we only had three 
churches desiring our services. 

First, on November 12, 1965 the committee was called together at the 
Florence Baptist Church for the pui^pose of questioning Mr. Ad Hopper 
to the gospel ministry. He was represented by the Sulphur Springs Bap- 
tist Church and had been called as p'astor of the West Point Church. The 
committee unamiously approved that he be ordained, which ordination 
service was held the follcwing Sunday at the Sulphur Springs Ba,ptist 
Church. 

Second, the committee was called together again on December 24, 1965 
at tbe Spencer Baptist Church for the purpose of questioning Mr. Larry 
Keeter. After finding him to be sound and in good faith, he was 
unanimously recommended to be ordained, which ordination service was 
held on the Sunday night folknving at the Spencer Baptist Church. 

Third, the committee was requested to meet on June 3, 1966 by the 
Camp's Creek Baptist Church for the purpose of questioning Air. Joe 
Buckner. 'Mr. Buckner was questioned by the council v/hich unamiously 
recommended that he be ordained to the gos,pel ministry. This service 
was taken care of on the following day at the Camp's Creek Baptist Church-

SOUTH MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CAMP REPORT 

God blessed our South 'Mountain Baptist Camp with another wonderful 
summer. Many who came had a deep experience with God, and their 
mission vision was broadened. They learned how everyone should nelp 
proclaim the message of Christ throughout the whole world.

Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Over 1,800 attended the Camp this summer. 102 attended from eight 
churches in our association as follows : Adaville — 8, Camp's Creek — 6, 
Caroleen — 21, Corinth — 28, Drewery Dolphins — 9, Henrietta, First — 
6, vSandy Mush — 15, and Temple — 9. 

689 made decisions for Christ, including 136 professions of faith. 500 
earned honor awards by participating in camp activities, camp attitude, 
and study in GA and KA work. 

The road into the Comp was paved in July at a cost of $14,393.00. Half 
of this has been paid, but some of the operating funds were used to do 
it. The remaining $7,196 00 has to be paid by February 15, 1967. Some of 
this has hten pledged. Our associational board last April agreed that our 
association would give $1,(XX).00 to this project this new year. Perhaps 
some of our churches will send individual gifts and will boost what we

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

State Missions is the effort of North CaroHna Baptists to teach the 
I^ible to the lost in our State and v.in tliem to a vital faith in Jesus 
Christ in those areas where there are not sufficient churches and in 
])rojects too big for local churches. When you think about the fact 
that around half the population or about two and a half million people 
of our State have no church connection, you realizie something of the 
challenge. Too, the population is increasing, people are moving, new 
residential sections are mushrooming up and new apartment houses 
are being built — all this calls for new cliurches and the strengthening 
of some old, established churches. 

State Missions has been helping in the various needs. It has helped in 
Vacaton Bible Schools through the State Sunday School Department; 
it has been assisting more than 30 new churclies each year in getting 
floor plans for building and remodeling; it has aided many struggling 
churches in needy areas on pastors salaries; it is helping most of the 
associations on their program; it helps in youth conventions, assemblies, 
and camps; it helps in mission centers; it ministers to military personnel 
at Fort Bragg, Camp Lejuene, and Cherry Point ; it furnishes a special 
ministry in ministering and witnessing to Ja,panisc wives of servicemen 
on military bases ; it helps present the Gospel in sign language to the 
silent people; it helps in some associational center literacy programs; 
it reaches the Cherokee Indians ; it provides a spiritual program in 
the correctional institutions such as Samarcant Manor, Morrison Train- 
ing School at Hoffman, the Odcim Prison at Lasker, the TB prisoners 
at McCain, and the Prison Rehabilitation Center at Butner; it takes 
the message to many of the migrants passing through our State each 
year; and State Missio'Us helps in numerous other ways. 

A tremendous opportunitv awaits us in Saate Missions.

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 



A pressing need of each cluirch in our association is an undergirding 
of the Cooperative Program with piaycr. information on the world wide 
Missionary work carried on through the Cooperative Program will 
form a basis by which your church can pray with knowledge and /eal. 

The Cooperative Program must be nurtured in prayer because infor- 
mation alone is not enough. It is hoped that every church Vv'ill have a 
special prayer for some mission cause supported through the Cooperative 
Program, in the Prayer Service each week during the month of Octo])er. 

We are witnessing the greatest missionary advance in Southern Bap- 
tist histor}^ in missionaries being sent, l^enevolent work done and tram- 
ing of young people for world wide ser\ ice. This advance is being made 
through our missionaries, orphanages, schools, homes for the aged, and 
our Baptist hospitals. Through the Cooperative Program you literally 
feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, and preach the gospel 
to the far corners of the earth. 

We are making progress in our concern for those Jesus came to seek 
and to serve. Each year more of our churches are increasing Cooperative 
Program giving and at the same time others are l)eginning whole hearted 
participation. 

Several associations in North Carolina have lO0'% of their churches 
giving through the Cooperative Program. According to available records 
our association gave a total of $113,519 this past year through the Co- 
operative Program. Nine churches did not share in world missions through 
the Cooperative Program. 

With enthusiasm let us be faithful in worshiping with tithes and 
offerings, and omr church sharing regularly through the Cooperative 
Program for the beneiit of a lost world. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

We recommend. : 

1. That every church plan a stevv^ardship program to sus-cribe and 
thoroughly .promote the cliurch's budget. 

2. That we engage regularly in prayer for Cooperative Program causes 
and give special emphasis to prayer for these needs during the October 
Cooperative Program Prayer Emphasis. 

3. That the churches give regularly through the Cooperative Program.

Its Mission Through Proclam.ation and Witness." The theme for the

"M" Night at Spencer Baptist Church on Alonday night, December 6, 
1965, was an inspiration to everyone present. Rev. R. Von King, pastor 
of the First Baptist Church, Lyman, S. C, brought the inspirational 
message. The attendance was 345 with 36 churches and 24 pastors par- 
ticipating. 

The Associational Training Union Tournament this year was very 
vv^ell represented by the churches of the association. However, there is 
a great need for eacli church witli a Training Union to feel the burden 
of participrtting in tlie tournament next year. 

]\[ay I urge each of you to study and stay u,p to date with the current 
Training Union materials, especially The Training Union Magazine. 
This is essential in order to know what is going on in Training Union 
work. 

Also, may I thank each of you for your prayers, assistance, and sup- 
port in carrying on the Training Union work. 1 would like to pledge to 
you my support to the new director the coming year, and beg you to 
support liud use your Training Union as a means toward a more effec- 
tive Christian witness tlirough the local churcli.

Reports 



ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 



Response to the new program of family and retirement protection dur- 
ing tlie first quarter of 1967 indicates entiiusiastic acceptance by ministers 
and denominational employees. During the first three months of 1967, 
more than 1,030 persons joined some part of the three-plan program as 
compared with only 685 during the first quarter of 1966, 

The New Program, called the Southern Baptist Protection Program, 
provides additional benefits for disability, new benefits for children, 
education of children and dependent parent. These extra benefits are in 
Plan "A". 

The new Protection Program incorporates the three plans into one 
certificate, which formerly required separate certificates for each plan. 
The three p'ans are: Southern Baptist Protection Plan, which is now 
Plan "A" ; Age Security Plan now called Plan "B" ; and Variable Benefit 
Plan, now Plan "C". 

Information on the new Protection Program may be obtained from 
the annuity secretary in our state. 

In 1966, more than $4,256,244- was paid in age retirement, disability or 
widow benefits to persons who had participated in the Protection Pro- 
gram. The checks vary in amounts, depending on the length of service 
and the amount of dues paid into the Program by the members. 

The cost of living continues to climb. A retirement program based on 
$4,000 salary is no longer adequate to meet the needs of a minister when 
he retires. There seems to be no hope of a leveling off of the inflationary 
trends. Because of this, the new Protection Program was started so 
churches could help their pastors increase their retirement protection. 
Now a church may participate on the total salary of its pastor or other 
employees. Ten per cent dues on total salary are recommended as 
minimum. 

As of December 31, 1964, some 1,492 persons had joined Plan '*A" 
of the Program. A total of 18328 churches were providing the Protection 
Program for their ministers and staff members. Almost 12,600 of these 
churches were paying both member and church dues. 

There are 137 of the 176 Agencies in the state conventions and the 
Southern Baptist Convention which have Protection Programs with 
the Board. A total of 8,121 persons are protected in the agency programs. 

The following 37 churches in our association participates in the Annuity 
Board Protection Programs for their pastor and other staff members. 
Adavil^e, Alexander, Bethany, Bostic 1st, Calvar}/, Camp's Creek, Caroleen, 
Chase, Cliffside, Concord, Crestview, Fairview, Florence, Gantt's Grove, 
Glenwood, Goode's Creek, Green Creek, Haynes Memorial, Hick's Grove,

REPORT OF ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS 

The history of associational missions is rooted in the New Testament. 
The churches back then and with all the distance between them felt a 
concern for each other and some dependence on each other. 

In the early history of the Baptist churches in our Country they felt 
the need of fellowship and of each other's hel,p and formed associations. 
The association helped them do some things together which they could 
not very well doi by themselves. Two of those things were the matter of 
missions and the unification of doctrine. 

Today the needs of the churches are still similar. They need the fel- 
lowship and challenge of each other. They need associational programs 
of stewardship, education, and missions that not many churches can get 
by themselves, but these things are being done through the association. 

The A.ssociation this past year has had an associational missionary and 
an associational secretary who have helped plan, co-ordinate, and pro- 
mote the work in various ways. They have helped plan an associational 
calendar of activities, have helped plan and hold clinics and workshops. 
A central training school was held. The missionary has visited in most 
if not all the churches two to several times during the year, helping some 
of them in various ways. Eleven issues of bulletins and a total of 8,485 
bulletins were published and mailed to inform the people about our 
Baptist work. 10,091 letters and cards were mailed, informing our leaders 
about certain meetings and things that needed our attention. 

To helj) keep our Association abreast of things, the associational mis- 
sionaiT has attended many meetings outside the association such as con- 
ventions, clinics, briefing meetings, and assemblies.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

We are the oldest Baptist Foundation in the southern states having 
been organized in 1919. The Foundation has steadily increased in its 
growth as an effective witness and found a permanent place in N. C. 
Baptist ministry. 

In spite of the fact that we are the oldest Southern Foundation, we 
are yet far from reaching our potential usefulness. Mr. C. Gordan 
Maddrey, Executive Secretary of the Foundation, says, "It is absolutely 
necessary that the pastors of the state believe in the foundation, sup- 
port the Foundation, and specifically provide the Foundation with names 
of individuals who might desire the services of the Foundation " 

The Foundation is interested in learning of those persons who might 
desire to make their gift through accumulated income, such as: 1. livmg 
trusts; 2. gift annuit3M and 3. bequests in wills. 

The Foundation will assist you at 3'Our request.

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

The purpose of the Brotherhood is to provide missionary information 
and missionary activity for Baptist Men, Young Men, and Boys. A 
Brotherhood program in a Baptist Church is composed of one or more of 
the following units: Baptist Alen, Baptist Young Men, Royal Amassa- 
dors. Thirty-three of our churches, including the Brotherhood organized 
this year, have Brotherhood vv^ork. 

Our Brotherhood Workshop was held at Florence in November with 
our State Brotherhood Secretary, Ed Bullock, and his state workers di- 
recting. The Brotherhood Supper Meeting was held at Spencer Church in 
March. Supper was provided by the WMU with proceeds going to the 
Annie Armstrong Offering. Seventy-six plates were served. 

Work at the State Prison Camp in Spindale has been in progress since 
May 1. The Sunday School lesson has been brought to the men there 
each Sunday at 9 A.M. by the different Brotherhoods of our Association. 
Our men have been gracious in their response. 

The date for the Fall Brotherhood Workshop is November 9 and 10 
at Florence Baptist Church at 7:30-0:00 with Mr. Bullock directing. 
Also, February 29th has been set aside for the Brotherhood Supper 
at Spencer. 

The RA leaders, B. A. 'Marshall and Don Hammond, planned a good 
program for the Royal Ambassadors at Cool Springs Junior High School 
last fall, but had to cancel it because of bad v/eather. However, a very suc- 
cessful RA Field Day was held at the Sandy Run Baptist Church in the 
spring. One RA Chapter has been organized this year.

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

Helping children and young people to grow and develop toward Chris- 
tian maturity is one of the greatest privileges in life. No task is more im- 
portant than helping a child to grow into healthy, well-adjusted, re- 
sponsible citizenship. At the Children's Homes they seek to provide the 
proper atmosphere, encouragement and supervision to assure the develop- 
ment of inborn, God-given talents of our children. 

This agency offers a variety of quality services to the children of fam- 
ilies who have not been able to continue a satisfactory pattern of livmg 
together. A total of 33 cottages on five campuses provide group care of 
different kinds. There are two residences for emotionally disturbed chil- 
dren, convenient to a great m.edical center where phychiatric seiwices are 
available. This fall, for the first time, a single cottage at Wallburg is 
being opened for the rehabilitation of boys. 

In addition to group homes, the needs of many children are met through 
the use of Foster Homes. Many families are finding happiness and op- 
portunity for service in caring for foster children. Should you have an 
"extra measure of love" to share in this way, the Homes would like to 
know of your interest . 

In June of 1967, the first of the new living cottages was completed 
and is being used by brothers and sisters who can profit by sharing the 
same home. This building was provided by Mr. and Mrs. William M. 
York of Greensboro, and is named the York Cottage. A similar cottage 
is already under construction at Mills Home and two buildings of this 
type are now being built on the Kennedy Home cam,pus:. 

The Child Development Center on the Mills Home Campus was estab- 
lished to serve the local community as a means of strengthening family 
life and to provide a demonstration and informational program which can 
offer assistance to churches in beginning any phase of weekday care 
and education for preschool children. 

Members of the Board of Trustees and the Staff of the Children's 
Homes are committed to the task of maintaining a Christian Program of 
Child Care — a program that will merit the undivided support and loyalty 
of our people and that will bring favor to our Lord. To that end it is 
their purpose to meet, as effectively as possible, the challenges of our 
day.

CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS REPORT 
(Christian Action League) 

More than 53,000 Americans died in automobile accidents last year 
according to the National Safety Council. The Council states that alcohol 
was a factor in half of these cases. In Wisconsin, two-thirds of the drivers 
involved in accidents were drinking. The number of deaths on our 
highways have increased by more than 3,000 annually for the past three 
years. 

33 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Estimates on alcoholics range as high as 8,000,000 in our country. Be- 
sides, there are more than 5,000,000 heavy drinkers, and each drinker will 
affect at least five people. According to 1966 N, C. Bapist Annual, more 
than $118,000,000 are being spent on alcohol in our state each j^ear. 

Your Civic Righteousness, Committee has made an attempt to in- 
fluence our State Representatives and Senator in voting against the 
brown-bagging bill and liquor-by-the-drink. A luncheon meeting was 
held in Forest City just prior to the meeting of the General Assembly. 
We had most of our pastors present and all of our State Representaive. 
We can report that only one of our representatives failed us in the 
General Assembly. 

We must continue to work and pray that when the 1969 General 
Assembly meets, the wet forces will not be able to pass a liquor-by-the- 
drink bill. This same bill will be up again then. The "wets" never retire. 

We must continue to endorse the Christian Action League and give 
it more support as it deals with the evils of drinks.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

It is the total task of the Church to make disciples and to teach them 
"all things whatsoever I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:20). The 
Christian life is a learning process, and all the organizations of the 
church should be avenues of Christian Education. 

The seven Baptist colleges of North Carolina Baptists are seeking 
to teach Christian principles to the yoimg people as they come from our 
churches to their campuses. It is a continuing process of teaching the 
principles of Jesus in all areas of life. 

As of October 1, 1966, there were 11,347 students enrolled in our 
Baptist colleges. This represents approximately the same number enrolled 
as the previous year. Limited facilities, both in housing and instruction, 
have made it necessary to turn away many students. 

Our colleges continue to train miost of the young people who enter the 
church vocational field. The Christian college, however, is not solely in 
the business of training full-time Christian workers, for the vast majority 
of the students will return to their communities as laymen. These men 
and women return to their communities not only to assume responsibilit3'' 
in the local church, but to bear a Christian witness through their pro- 
fessions in the communities v/here they work. 

The Cooperative Program gives vital support to our colleges. For the 
year 1967, $1,578,960 has been budgeted. The colleges are grateful for 
this support. In 1966 the Christian Education Day Offering was $132,046, 
and the colleges are in hopes there will be an increase this year.

CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE'S REPORT 

During the past year, the Christian Life Commission significantly in- 
creased its applied Chri^stianity ministries to Southern Baptists. It is 
now clear that rank-and-file Southern Baptists are increasingly av/are 
of the need to apply the Christian gospel to the world in which we live. 
Especially pressing" is the need for God's good news in Christ in the 
m.idst of the moral revolution n'"^\v taking place through the nation. 

Tangible evidence of Southern Baptists' response to its Christian Life 
Commission's ministries is impressive. For one thing, the Commission's 
written materials reached a new high in total circulation — 71,290,000, or 
an increase over the previous ytar of 17,453,977. In addition to these 
materials which were channeled through Southern Baptist publications 
of all kinds, more than a quarter of a million pamphlets were distributed 
upon the request of individual Southern Baptists or the churches. Vi/ork 
was completed on a new series of pamphlets entitled "Issues and 
Answers," providing basic information and a plan of action for Chris- 
tians on alcohol, honesty, race relations, juvenile delinquency, porno- 
graphy, the mass media, communism, poverty, peace, and gambling. 

There was a gratifying response during the past year to the con- 
ferences planned by the Christian Life Commission. Especially note- 
worthy were the lectures by Dr. David R. Mace, a foremost authority on 
family life, at Glorieta and Ridgecrest on the theme, "Toward A Chris- 
tian Interpretation of Sex." Attendance was the largest in the history 
of these conferences, averaging about 400. The Commission staff also 
participated in specialized meetings at almost every level of Southern 
Baptist life, using every opportunity to emphasize Christian moral re- 
sponsibility in local churches, associations, state Baptist conventions, 
and with the rising generation on college and seminary campuses. More 
new books, articles, and study materials were published last year than 
ever before in any twelve month period to help Southern Ba,ptists with 
the application of Christian principles in daily life. Four books, numerous 
articles, and many kinds of training materials were included among 
these publications.

EVANGELISM REPORT 

This past year the churches of our association baptized 394 persons. 
This represents a ratio of one baptism for every 50 members. We are 
grateful to God for every person who has been brought to confess Jesus 
Christ as Lord. We call upon our churches to give themselves to the 
work that brought Christ from heaven to earth, evangelism. Evangelism 
is the heart of our churches' existence. Evangelism must be a two- 
pronged thrust. We must publicly proclaim the Gospel that is the power 
of God unto salvation, and we must personally win others to Christ. 
"Every Christian, a Witness" must be more than a slogan; it must be 
a reality in our lives. 

This year our Associational Evangelistic emphasis was upon Youth- 
Led Revivals. The Billy Graham film, "The Restless Ones," was shown 
the week prior to Simultaneous Youth-Led Revivals with over 400 de- 
cisions made for Christ.

Our churches now face a tremendous evangelistic challenge in the 
Crusade for the Americas. This is more than just a two-week period of 
revivals. It is an emphasis on evangelism that should occupy our churches 
throughout 1968- '69 and 70. Our churches have been challenged by one 
of our mission fields, Brazil, to give ourselves to the work of evangelism 
and world missions for 1968-69. Some of the challenges in the Crusade 
of the Americas are : 

NATION-WIDE EMPHASIS ON PRAYER: Two days of prayer, 
January 14. 1968. and January 12, 1969 ; PACT : A program of "prayer 
partners" Vv'ith individuals, groups, and churches on the "Other Americas" 
initiated in July- August, 1968; Watch Night Prayer Service, December 
31, 1968. 

NATION-WIDE SEARCH FOR PROSPECTS: May, June, July, Au- 
gust, 1968. 

NATION-WIDE VISITATION WITNESSING: September, November, 
1968. 

NATION-WIDE CRUSADE OF THE AMERICAS REVIVAES: March 
16-30; April 6-20; April 27 - May 11, 1969. 

NATION-WIDE EMPHASIS ON NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION. 
Following" the Crusade of the Americas Revivals, study of book, "Daring 
Discipleship," and launch new member orientation. 

SPECIAL EMPHASIS IN NORTH CAROLINA ON CHRISTIAN 
MATURITY: January 1 - December 31, 1970. 

Adequate guidance material for cooperation with and in preparation 
for the Crusade of the Americas is provided for us in the l%7-68 Evange- 
lism Plan Book already available to us and in the 1968-69 Evang'elism 
Plan Book, which will be available after July of 1968 from the Division 
of Evangelism, 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, North Carolina 27603.

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

At the end of 1966 there were 2,208 missionaries serving in 62 countries 
around the world. Even though 207 missionaries had been appointed, 
this was a net gain of only 138. All 62 missions needed new missionaries, 
but just 38 of the 62 countries received a new missionary. The largest 
number appointed for a particular country went to Brazil. The State 
of Texas was first and North Carolina second in the states supplying 
the largest number of newly appointed missionaries. 

The latest figures available this year in time for our report are for 
August which show a total of 2,301 missionaries under appointment. 
Also, during the year we have entered three new countries, Morocco, 
Ethiopia, and Botswana, thus increasing the countries where we have 
work to 65. 

The Foreign 'Mission Board has begun at Ridgecrest in September this 
year a new Orientation Conference for specialized help for overseas 
effort which last 16 weeks and replaces the 7 to 10 day conferences pre- 
viously held for recently appointed missionaries. A conference will be 
held twice each year, beginning in September and January.

■rhe total -budget for the board for 1967 is $28,022,300, 93% of which 
is spent on Mission Fields abroad. A minimum increase annually of 
$2,225,000 is required for the support of missionaries and ministries abroad, 
and yet each year it is necessary to leave waiting more than $4,000,000 of 
recommendations which have been submitted to the Foreign Mission 
Board by the mission fields because resources are not sufficient to pro- 
vide for them. These funds come primarily from the Cooperative Pro- 
gram and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. This special offering goal 
in 1966 was $14 500.000. Sandy Run Association gave $30,738.00. The 
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal for 1967 is $15,000,000. How much 
of a part in World Missions did your church have in 1966? Won't you 
plan to have a greater share in this in 1967?

parallelled opportunities for sharing the gospel, but they also channel 
to the world information regarding our spiritual and moral weaknesses. 
In such a situation, every effort to Christianize the United States takes 
on global dimensions. At this point in human history home missions must 
be a major concern of Southern Baptist. 

A MISSIONARY FORCE of over 2,100 assists Southern Baptists in 
their efforts to bring men to God through Jesus Christ in a period 
characterized by national and international tensions, inflationary economy, 
growing population, moral problems, and mounting social changes. This 
force was reinforced in 1966 by the appointment of 427 missionaries, with 
119 on career status. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE went to 270 churches for loans totaling 
more than $4.5 million. The funds of the Church Loans Division now 
total more than $17.5 million, and the agency seeks new methods of 
guaranteed loans that will multiply these funds. 

Number of workers (excluding summer workers), 1966 — 2,166, 

Professions of Faith, 1966 — 56,834. 

Additions to Churches, 1966 — 31,259. 

Total Professions and Additions, 1966 — 88,093. Loss of 3,837 under the 
previous year.

HOMES FOR THE AGING REPORT 

North Carolina Baptist Homes for the Aging have been busy during the 
past year. Our fifth home at Yanceyville was opened giving us room to 
care for 30 more elderly people. This brings our total up to 200 deserving, 
older men and women in our care in all of the Homes. 

The Special Day Offering in the state for 1967 was at an all-time high 
and has increased by 10% over last year. This is most commendable, but 
when we face the reality of costs, which have advanced by 20%, and the 
maintenance of an New Home and the care of 30 additional residents 
at Yanceyville, we could face a real crisis during the next year, unless 
the gifts from our Baptist people continue to increase in proportion to 
our needs. 

We wish to thank all of our Baptist people in our association who are 
enabling us to minister to the aging in Christ's Name, and we want all 
of you to know that each of your five Homes exists for the people from 
all over our State. The Homes could not operate without your love, your 
prayers, your concern, and your financial support.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

Since 1941 when our Hospital and our Medical School were joined, 
there has been rapid change both in medicine and in fast development of 
our Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. 

39 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



There are new means of diagnosing our ills. New drugs are being de- 
veloped almoist daily for combating disease. There are new techniques 
in treating our iMs, new instruments to perform miracles such as the 
cobalt machine, the heart lung pump, the pacemaker for the heart, and 
the laser beam in surgery. There are new facilities for better care of 
the patient, such as the intensive care unit and the progressive care unit. 

There is a new concept of the patient, and he is treated as a whole per- 
son, including his emotional and spiritual needs as well as his physical 
problems. 

Such important progress necessarily means greatly increased cost in 
medical care. We received a call for help this year, and while eight of 
our churches gave nothing and fifteen gave less than the year before, 
thirty-four of our churches heeded the plea and increased their offerings 
over the year before. Our total offerings increased over eight hundred 
dollars. 

The ministry to the sick is a ministry in which we as churches and in- 
dividual Christians join hands with those who serve in our Medical Center. 
If this service is made available to all our people who need it, we of 
necessity have to provide much of the means, for there are many who can- 
not pay for it. This is a wonderful opportunity when we, by simply 
giving our money, can share in so important a service to our brother in 
need, and even hear a "Well done," for "inasmuch as ye have done it 
unto one of the least of these niy brethren, ye have done it unto me."

INTERRACIAL COOPERATION REPORT 

In interracial work this past summer a coilege student said, "I can 
never begin to tell all that this summer has meant to me, for how do 
you communicate the joy you feel when you realize that you had a 
part in winning 41 boys and girls to Christ? And how do you explain 
what it means when you find you love as brothers in Christ people you 
had always feared I would not exchange this summer for any- 
thing in the world." 

42 Vacation Bible Schools were held enrolling over 3,600 boys and 
girls. In the Asheville area there were seven standard schools held in 
the General Baptist churches. 

The Sandy Run Association gave the Gold Hill Baptist Association a 
Vacation Bible School Clinic and has given other minor help. A WMU 
of one of our churches gave $35.00 to help buy VBS materials in three 
of the Negro churches. 

Four Human Relations Conferences were held during the year which 
were sponsored by onr Baptist State Convention in cooperation with 
the General Baptist Convention, and a week at Mars Hill College. Also, 
a number of the General Baptist Convention people participated in our 
summer camps and assemblies the past summer. 

The General Baptist vState Convention has voted to participate in 
the Crusade of the Americas, and our two State Conventions are planning 
a conference on evangelism in Greensboro in 1969.

CHURCH LIBRARIES ACTIVITIES REPORT 



In the 1966-67 Minutes there were 29 churches which reported 
libraries, but only 24 hbrarians. Won't you please make an honest eft'ort 
to get someone to be responsible for gathering your resource materials 
for organizations. Remember, there is absolutely nothing that can take 
the place of a church library. 

I have had the pleasure of assisting one new librarian in understanding 
something of library work and helping her to know where to get the 
information neither of us knew. 

February 20 through 24 of this year was a crowning moment in our 
library work as an association. At the Central Training School there 
were 14 enrolled with 8 churches represented and 6 receiving awards. 
February of 1968 will be another opportunity to train for better service 
in yiour church library work. 

National I^ibrary Week will be April 14-20. This will be a good time to 
promote church library work since everyone will be reading conscious. 

What kind of books do you expect to find in a church library ? Mrs. 
Ida lyce Freeman suggests: 1st — Religious books; 2nd — Books sug- 
gested in denominational literature ; 3rd — Clean wholesome recreational 
reading, fiction, biography, sports, careers, teen-age hobbies, crafts, camp- 
ing, for children — nature studies, anything that will build character 
and challenge a person to live a more useful life. 

Think of YOUR CHURCH LIBRARY as a partner in the common 
task of all the other organizations of the church.

MUSIC MINISTRY REPORT 

The Associational Music Ministry did not have a Christmas Carol Sing 
on the square of Forest City, but cooperated with the Forest City Alinis- 
terial Association to provide a Singing Christmas Tree on the steps 
of the First Baptist Church for two evenings during the week of 
Christmas as a pantomiime scene was being portrayed at the east end 
of town 

Only ome church participated in the Choir Festivals in March. We 
sincerely hope that more will take an active part this coming 5'ear. 

The music ministry had a program for the Minister's Conference 
demonstrating the music which is being offered in the materials published 
by the Sunday School Board for the various age groups. 

A special mailing was sent to all music directors to urge them to 
report the music ministry of their church. We hope all music directors 
did report the choirs in the church letter to the association.

COMMITTEE ON ORDINATIONS REPORT 

The committee met January 10 at Henrietta First Church at the request 
of the church for the purpose of examining James Yelton for ordination 
to the ministry. The committee recommended that the Henrietta Church 
ordain him, and he was ordained January 22, 1967 at Henrietta hirst 
Church where he now serves as pastor. 

On April 15, 1967 the committee met at the Spencer Church for the 
purpose of examining Arthur Herroii for the gospel ministry. The 
committee, being well pleased with Brother Herron's answers and his 
work as associate chaplain in the General Hospital in Louisville, re- 
commended his ordination to the Spencer Baptist Church, which service 
was held on April 16, 1967.

SOUTH MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CAMP REPORT 

Words cannot express to you what God did for us at South Mountain 
Baptist Camp this year. He was very real to most of the 2,000 who at- 
tended the camp. 

Seven hundred cam^pers and visitors made some type of decision for 
Christ. This includes 132 young people that made professions of faith. 

Camp activities during the summer included four R.A. Camps with 460 
in attendance, five G.A. camps with 789 in attendance, two Brotherhood 
RA Field Days, eight retreats and overnight camps, and one Associational 
Youth Retreat. 

The South Fork and the Hicks' Grove Churches have adopted a cabin 
each to be responsible for their upkeep. Other churches may be willing 
to do the same. The balance due on the road is $5,000,00. It is hoped that 
enough churches, industries, and individuals will make a special efifort to 
help us liquidate this indebtedness bv spring.

Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Your camp is equipped to enrich the lives of two hundred campers each 
week. Therefore, we urge every church to consider bringing or sending 
their young people to camp next summer. 

Your camp director and other members of the staff are available to 
visit your church to inform them about your camp and to help them to 
see the value of a camping program.

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

The September 2 issue of the BIBLICAI. RECORDER presents State 
Missions in a fine manner. It touches on most of the objects in State 
Missions, portraying some of them in pictures. 

State Missions aims at winning the lost to Christ and developing 
Christians to become good witnesses of Jesus Christ. 

The church is the State Missions lighthouse for God when its members 
worship God, live dedicated lives, pray, and bring their tithes and offermgs 
for the glory of God. In his way each of us has a part in State Missions. 
Each witnesses in our State every day of the year. 

This year the financial goal of State Missions was $200,000.00. 20% 
of this offering was earmarked for a new administration building at 
Fruitland which is badly needed. 

State Missions this past year aided in several mission Vacation Bible 
Schools, enlargement campaigns, many training programs (S.S., T.U. 
music and brotherhood), choir festivals, and assemblies (Fruitland, Cas- 
well and Caraway). At Fruitland it has helped train 167 pastors the 
past year. It has helped on pastoral aid, in securing church lots, and 
in getting building plans for churches. Also, it has assisted ui our 
Cherokee and Burnt Swamp Indian work and in the work with the 
military forces in our State, including ministering to foreigners. 

State Missions has helped minister to the prison patients in McCain 
Tuberculosis Sanitarium, the prisoners at Odum Prison at lyasker, the 
boys at Morrison Training School at Hoffman, and the teen-age girls 
at Samarcand Manor correctional institution. Many in these institutions 
have been won to Christ. 

Everything in State Missions has not been covered in this report, nor 
were all the needs met. The work is greatly limited by our lack of dedi- 
cation and giving. 

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 

Despite the fact that Southern Baptist have been sharing the gospel 
through the Cooperative Program since 1925 many do not know what 
this plan is. The question — What is the Cooperative Program? — is 
often heard. 

The answer is simple. What the budget is to the local church the 
Cooperative Program is to the denomination. It is support for all mis- 

46

sionary causes at home and abroad — it's preaching the gospel — it's 
healing in tlie name of Jesus through hospitals and clinics everywhere — 
it is teaching" and training Christian leaders for all the great tasks of 
Kingdom endeavor. 

As our people worship with tithes and offerings Sunday by Sunday 
and as the local church channels a part of its income through the Co- 
operative Program, we enter partnership with God and one another in 
obedience to the command, "Go . . . preach . . . teach ... !" 

irCt us resolve to pray earnestly for all Kingdom work and support 
our prayers with sacrificial giving of self and substance. 

Last year North Carolina Baptists gave $5,787,311 through the Co- 
operative Program. Supplementing this with Special Oft'ering amounting 
to $2,897,639, we had a total of $8,684,950 for all mission causes! Two 
associations (Anson and Yates) had 100% of their churches giving through 
the Cooperative Program. 

According to records available, our association gave $115,427 during 
the last year for World Missions through the Cooperative Program. 
We recommend: 

(1) That each church plan, vigorously promote, and subscribe a worthy 
budget. 

(2) That special emphasis be given to prayer for Cooperative Program 
causes during October. 

(3) That each church give regularly through the Cooperative Program. 

(4) That in response to the special call of the General Board of the 
Baptist State Convention, we increase our Cooperative Program giving 
by at least 10% during the coming year.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The 1966-67 Sunday School program emphasized the important con- 
tinuing task of a Sunday School: 

To teach the Biblical revelation; 

To lead all church members to worship, witness, learn, and minister 
daily ; 

To lead in reaching all prospects for the church ; 

To provide organization and leadership for special projects of the 
church ; 

To provide and interpret infoniiation regarding the work of the church 
and denomination ; 

The task of leading all church members to learn daily involves the 
Sunday School in the emphasis "A Church Fulfilling Its Mission Through 
Education." Sunday School leaders should seek to lead members to par- 
ticipate in all learning opportunities offered by the church. 

4/ 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



In the year 1967-68 the emphasis will be on Church Growth through 
the Adult Focus Groups. Some important events will l^e January Bible 
Study, a Central Training School, a Vacation Bible School Clinic, and 
preparation for the Crusade of the Americas. 

Let us work in the year to improve teaching in the Sunday School 
classroom. 

The Sunday School is the church's arm of outreach. This organization 
is responsible for discovering the prospects, winning them to Christ, 
and then training and educating them. The church that takes seriously 
the command of our Lord, "Go ye therefore, teach all nations" (Matt. 
28:19), will go beyond the present church and Sunday School rolls to 
discover its possibilities. The concern of such a Sunday School will 
lead its members from house to ho'use in their search for lost and un- 
churched persons.

tors present. There were 43 churches represented. 

The Associational Training Union Tournament was held at the First 
Baptist Church, Bostic, with participants in each age group on March 
2. 1967.

Raymond L. Hudson 
1930 - 1968 



To the unforgettable memory of Raymond L. Hudsan, pastor 
of the Temple Baptist Church for nearly five years, we dedicate 
the 1968 Minutes of the Sandy Run Association. 

As a pastor, Brother Hudson was sincere in his duties; as 
a preacher, he was unswerving in his devotion to proclaim the 
good news of the Gospel ; as a friend, his passing was a per- 
sonal loss to many; and as a Christian gentleman, his faith in 
both God and man was' one of highest degree.

Reports 



THE AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 

Christianity enters the space age, but does so with a handicap because 
of a critical shortage of the scripture. Seven out of eight Christians 
do not possess a New Testament; 50% of all the Christian families do 
not have Bibles and more than 2^ billion of the 3 billion people in the 
world are without any portion of the Written Word. 

Christianity will conquer the inner spaces of men's lives only as they 
encounter the Living Word of God. 

The American Society, an arm of the church, has existed for over 150 
years for the sole purpose of preparing and supplying Scriptures to 
all mankind in a language he can understand. The printing is done with- 
out comment and without profit. 

Southern Baptists have always been in the fore-front of active parti- 
cipation and cooperatian with ABS work and also leading the other 
74 denominations in financial support. 

North Carolina Baptists contributed $7,614.25 last year to ABS causes. 

The arm of ABS is reaching into such places as hospitals, prisons, 
armed forces, plus school and institutions of most all types. 

The American Bible Society depends entirely upon concerned churches 
and individuals who have the vision to free men's souls with the Word. 

The world will not wait, and it need not, as long as dedicated Christ- 
ians will do as the Bible says and share the Good News with the whole 
world. It is said the Word will stand forever. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. M. Owens 

ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 

The three-plan (the "A," "B," and "C" Plans) Southern Baptists Pro- 
tection Program has one provision in Plan "A" that will affect all 
prospective new members soon. This provision is called "Delayed Par- 
ticipation," or "grace period." "The grace period" provision will be- 
come effective on January 1, 1969. The grace date is established in one 
of three ways: (1) as of January 1, 1969; (2) on the member's 26th birth- 
day; or (3) one year from the date he first became eligible. This means 
that if a member joins Plan "A" later than his grace date, the disability, 
widow, child, education and depandent parent benefits will be propor- 
tionally reduced. The reduction will be the ration which such years of 
delay bear to the total years from the grace date to the normal retire- 
ment date. Therefore, it is important that all who are eligible join the 
Program before January 1, 1969. 

During 1967, 3,146 members joined some part of the three-plan Program. 
The plans in the Protection Program are : Plan "A" formerly called 
the Southern Baptist Protection Program, and the plan in which benefits

were increased and new ones added; Plan "B" the A,gt Security Plan; 
and Pla»n "C" the Variable Plan. 

For the second year, all persons receiving a life benefit were mailed 
a "13th" check for an amount equal to 12% of his annual benefit. These 
checks were made possible because of interest earnings in excess of 
what the plans required. 

The Protection Program is designed to .hel,p any church provide as 
much retirement income for the minister and staff as it desires. 10% 
dues on total salary is recommended by the Annuity Board and conven- 
tion secretaries. 

The Annuity Board's August's report shows that only 34 of our churches' 
have their pastors amd three of those churches with five staff members 
in one or more of the Plans, making a total of 39 participants.

Niclson Root

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS REPORT 



A Baptist Association is a group of churches in a local area that vol- 
untarily join themselves together for the purpose of missions in the as- 
sociation, state, nation, and world. So we have associational missions, 
state missions, home missions, and foreign missions. 

A church's concern for others determines its views of missions. Some 
churches are bothered with myopia. Their bi|g vision is of themselves 
while others' have both myoptic and hyperoptic views. They see themselves 
and the needs away ofT yonder, and there is a bliind spot just beyond 
their local area. They don't see the association but dimly if at all. They 
need good eyes to see clearly all the way or trifocals so they can see 
themselves, the association, and also afat off. 

28 



Minutes' of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



The association deserves the concern, sympathy, and support of the 
churches that created it or that join it. It is the tnearest organization to 
the local church. The churches join it. They don't join the State or 
Southern Conventions. They report to the association, not to the State 
or Southern Conventions. 

Because we have an association, we have the annual session of the 
association and associational board meetings during the year. We have 
the associational organizations and an associational missionary for aiding 
and strengthening the work. The State and Southern Convention work 
through the association and the missionary in helping the churches quite 
often. This is an indication of the importance of the association from 
the Conventions' poirnt of view. 

Now, something of the associational missionary's activities: The As- 
sociational Office was moved last February from the Florence Church to 
Rooms 203-4, Union Trust Bank Building, Forest City, so there could 
be room for a secretary. The missionary delivered 30 sermons and mes- 
sages, taught 19 SS lessons, visited in most of the churches and in \\76 
services, presented pictures 21 times, helped in a couple Vacation Bible 
Schools and study courses, held 175 or more individual and committee 
conferences and few telephone conference, mailed 11 issues of bulletins, 
10,726 letters and cards. Also, he attended 28 associational and 24 State 
and Southern Convention meeting.

BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

The past year has been one of continued progress for the North Car- 
olina Baptist Foundation. Since its founding in 1919, the Foundation 
has steadily and consistently grown in resources and influence throughout 
North Carolina. "More and more of our Baptist people are inquiring 
about the services oif the Foundation, and they are following their inquires 
with concrete evidences of concern," states Mrs. Marie R. Denmark, 
office secretary of the Fomndation. From various individuals donations 
of money have been made to the Foundation for a particular agency 
or imstitution. Others, assisted by their attorneys, have made provisions 
in their wills that through the Foundation Christian causes have been 
remembered. 

Mrs. Denmark further states, "One of our major emphasis has been 
in the area of will making. Our pastors, associational superintendents- 
amd our church representatives have given encouraging help in this 
educational campaign. The response in each instance, whether in an 
association or individual church, has been most gratifying." 

The North Carolina Baptist Foundation is an excellent way for one 
to continue to serve Christ and His cause even after death has taken 
him from this earthly life. The Foundation is anxious to learn of people 
who may be interested in any phase of its services for the advancement 
of the Kingdom. The Foundation will be glad to give further information 
and assistance to anyone who may be interested in any part of its pro- 
gram.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

This is a full year at out Baptist Hospital with more than 30,000 sick 
people beiing given medical service and Christian ministry, and more 
than 165,000 visits being made to the clinics of the Hospital. In addition 
to this, more than 700 persons are receiving training in the various fields 
of medical care and Christian service, and a vast amount of medical re- 
search is being done in the causes and treatments of the diseases which 
afflict us and our loved ones. 

The Development Program, which will greatly increase the capacity 
of the Medical Center to train and serve, is progressing on schedule. 
The new power plant is scheduled to go into operation in October. The 
Paramedical School building is due to be ready by next April. The Medical 
School addition is to be ready by September, 1969, and will allow that 
school to enlarge by 35'%. 

But this has been a very difficult year fimancially, and our Hospital 
has been forced to make important changes in its financial policies. 
In the face of mountiing costs and increasing needs' of people, the Hos- 
pital has been struggling with a growing deficit. We have been told this 
for several years, but the gap has continued to increase between the 
cost of free service and the money we have provided for this service. 
The amount of free service now will have to be governed by the amount of 
the Mother's Day Fund. A patient's hospital bill will be estimated in 
advaince and any available hospital insurance will be deducted, and the 
balance must be paid before the patient is' admtited unless he is certi- 
fied by his county welfare department or some other a,gency. Any 
balance beyond the estimated bill must be paid before the patient is 
discharged. In case of an emergency, the patient may be admitted but 
the hospital bill must be paid as soom as possible after admission. The 
Mother's Day Fund will be used, as it has been, to pay the difference 
between the amount paid by the certifying agency and the total cost 
of caring for the patient. 

The great concern at our Baptist Hospital is for these patients who 
must have financial assis'tancc if they are to get the specialized care 
they need. But the Hospital has come to the point that it cannot continue 
to operate without the money necessary to cover the cost. In view of 
the circumstances, v/e believe the great majority of our pastors and our 
people will understand these chainges and will give their full cooperation. 
The Mother's Day Offering will need to be increased greatly if our Hos- 
pital is to fulfill its mission to our people who most need it. We want 
to assure our Hospital that it can depend upon us in full measure.

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

A Brotherhood program in a Baptist Church is composed of one or more 
of the foilowitng units : Baptist Men, Baptist Young Men, and Royal 
Ambassadors. When a church has only one of the above units, it has 
a Brotherhood. We now have in our association 39 Brotherhoods, a gain 
of one and some new men's units.

The purpose of the Brotherhood is to promote missionary information 
and missionary activity for Baptist men and boys. 

Our Brotherhood Workshop was held last fall at the Florence Baptist 
Church with our State Brotherhood Secretary, Ed Bullock, and his field 
workers, directing. The workshop will be held again this fall, November 
4 and 5, at the Race Path Church. Supper will be served the first night. 

The Sunday School in the State Prison Camp has made considerable 
progress uinder the direction of W. M. Hopper, the Mission Action 
Leader. A good response has come from all over the association in the 
prison work. 

B. A. Marshall, our R.A. Leader, with the aid of our state workers,

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 



North Carolina Baptists and other friends of the Children's Homes 
are making possible a Christian way of life for hundreds of boys and 
girls who otherwise would be denied many of life's best opportutnities. 
Alore than 1,300 children were assisted in some type of service during 
the past 3 ear. 

All associated with the Children's Homes are deeply grateful for 
every type of support. Cooperative Program income through the churches 
is increasingly important. Last year's Thanksgiving offering is the largest 
ever — now approachimg $325,000. Special gifts, bequests through wills 
and estate planning, provide much needed income and wonderful op- 
portunities to invest in the lives of children and young people. 

Bncouraging progre'^s is being made in the capital funds campaign 
to build a home for children in Western North Carolina to be located 
in Hay^vood County between Waynesville and Clyde. It is hoped that 
construction can begin in early 1969. The Western Home, im addition to 
providing group care, will strengthen all types of services now being 
provided children and their families in the Western area. 

Four family style cottages have beem constructed and dedicated during 
the past year — two at IMills Home and two at Kentucky Home. Two 
additional cottages will be constructed at Hills Home during the coming 
year. Funds for these buildings have come from bequests through estate 
planning by friends of neglected and depeindent children. 

The number of good Christian homes for the care of foster children 
is growing. More are needed in all siections of the state. Foster homes 
serve children of all ages and are particularly helpful for some who have 
sipecial needs. Couples with or without children of their own, who have 
an abundance of love, find this to be a challenging and rewarding op- 
portunity for Christian service. 

Members of the Board of Trustees and members of the S!taflF of the 
Homes are dedicated to a program of child care that will merit the im- 
divided loyalty and support of our peoiple and that will be worthy the 
blessings of our L,ord. We covenant with you to face the future as we 
have the past: to offer Christian murture to children in distress in the 
name of Christ our Saviour and Lord.

CiVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS REPORT , 
(Christian Action I^eague) 

Griminal violence is exploding into the most serious domestic crisis 
facing- our country. FBI figures show an ominous surge in crimes; riots, 
and brutality nearly everywhere, especially among teen-agers and young 
adults. Serious crimes are up 21 percent, more than one-fifth over last 
year's rate. 

Crime and vioiience that flourish in America cannot be attributed to 
ai5y single cause. The causes are many and interrelated, for they are 
rooted in a number of conditioms and influences! in contemporary life. 
But one cannot but believe that alcohol is a major contributor to crime. 
It is significant that whetn. rioting and looting begin in one of our major 
cities that one of the first things the authorities do is to close down the 
liquor stores. Our leaders realize that there is a clos'e relationship between 
hquor and crime. 

One of the most serious aspects; of the problem oi alcoholism is its 
use by teen-agers. Recemtly a survey was taken of 2,000' high school 
juniors and seniors in which 19 out of 20 students questioned admitted 
that they had tasted alcohol beveragesi at least once. One out of every 
four rated himself a "drinker," meaning that he drank more than just 
occasionally. The average age at which students reported they started 
drinkiing was 143^. A newspaper reported school officials in Coos Bay, 
Oregon, of breaking up a cocktail party at a playground. Twelve sixth 
graders, including three girls, were sus'pended from school. The principal 
said the children mixed drinks taken from their parents' bottles at home. 

Lftt us <lo all within our power to see that liquor does not come into 
our communities or homes. We must be alert and fight the evil iinflu- 
ence of alcohol. It is imperati\-e that we pray for and continue to sup- 
port the Christian Action League.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

The Christian college campus is emerging as a great moral and ethical 
force in American culture. Our Baptist colleges have taken the lead in 
restoring discipline and moral and ethical responsibility on the college 
campus. As long as we grasp this opportunity to work with our young 
people we will discover that we are preparing an effective Christian 
witness in America for the future. This is' no time for retreating or 
retrenching. It is a time for positive Christian witness from our churches 
and from our colleges'. 

This past year there were 12,024 students einrolled in the seven Baptist 
colleges of North Carolina. Altough many of these students plan to 
enter secular vocations, our colleges continue to train most of our 
Baptist young people who enter a church related vocation. 

To perform the ministry of Christian education through our Baptist 
Colleges, we must be willing to accept our financial responsibihties to 
these colleges. They are depending upon us in the local church. The 
continued growth of the s'upport by our Baptist people through the Co- 



Minutes* of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



operative Program is most encouraging. For the year 1968 the amount of 
$1,631,000.00 was given. 

May we continue to pray for and support our Baptist schools in every 
way. Never has there been a day when institutions of this kind have 
been so terribly needed.

Dillard A. Mynatt 

CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE 

This has been a historical year in the Southern Baptist Convention 
iin the area of Christian ethics. By a large majority, the Convention in 
an annual session at Houston, Texas, adopted a "Statement Concerning 
the crisis' in our Nation." This was a responsible step forward in the 
acceptance of the social imperatives of the Christian gospel. This state- 
ment was endorsed by the Christian Life Committee of the Baptist 
State Convention of North Carolina at a meeting on July 9, 1968. A num- 
ber of proposed recommendations coming out of the endorsement of 
this statement will be pres'ented to the Baptist State Convantion for 
consideration this fall. 

The Christian Life Commission's Program of Christian Morality de- 
velopment among Southern Baptists has made encoura,ging advances dur- 
ing the past year. Woman's Missionary Uinion and the Brotherhood 
Commission have moved out in the area of community action to express 
in a practical way a concern for Christian social ethics. The Sunday 
School Board and the seminaries are becoming more involved in mean- 
ingful social concern. Many local churches are concerned about applying 
Christian principles to s'ocial problems such as racism, alcohol, and gamb- 
ling, as well as contiinuing to apply these principles in the areas of 
family life, citizenship, obscenity, daily work, and the waging of peace. 

The strong emphasis of the Christian Life Commission on applied Chris- 
tianity continues' through books, articles, study guides, photographs, 
tracts, sermons, addresses, workshops, and conferences. To assist in 
this work, more than fifty thousand copies of a guide to current social 
is'sues have been made available to Southern Ba,ptist leaders to strength- 
en the total Baptist witness for Christ. 

In North Carohna, the most important immediate matter of interest 
is the strong possibility that a recommandation will come before the 
State Convention at its annual meeting this year that a Christian Life 
Division be established as' a part of our General Board Program. If 
this recommendation is accepted, this new Division will assume the re- 
sponsibilities of these existing committees: Christian Actiom, Christian 
Life and Public Affairs, as defined in the by-laws. It is felt strongly 
by convention leadership that such a Division is now in "the light of 
the urgent and complex moral issues confronting Christian people today 
and with respect to the responsibility of Baptists to provide leadership 
m the identification and solution of ethical problems to the uplifting, of 
the character of individuals and the total culture." 

The constant prayers, concenn, and involvement of each individual 
Chris'tian in matters of Christian morality is of utmost importance if 
God is' going to be able to do through Southern Baptists what He wants 
to do. j

EVANGELISM REPORT 

Evangelism is our first great responsibility, and the second is to foliow 
our Lord Jesus Christ obediently, as taught in the Scriptures, that the 
true fruits of evaingehsm may issue from our total lives. Therefore, it must 
be of utmost concern to very Spirit-filled Baptist to know there is; a re- 
liable source of divine knowledge found in the Bible. "To preach the 
Gospel of Christ one must know what the Gos'pel is, and this God has 
revealed and written for us in the Bible. 

To move with God this year and next in the Crusade of the Americas 
means that we must be diligent in searching the Scriptures amd pro- 
claiming the glorious Gospel of Christ revealed therein ; and that we must 
walk daily with God in the fellowship of prayer. Leaders m the churches 
must make sure these matters are always kept before the people in the 
churches. This done faithfully and sincerely day by day acros's the weeks 
and months will bring individuals and churches into vital relationship 
with God. 

It is urgently important that every church be confronted with the 
opportunity and responsibility of participating with other Baptist churches 
acrossl the Western hemisphere in prayerful concern for a spiritual 
awakening to be experienced in the simultaneous revival meetings next 
spring. 

In preparation for the Crusade of the Americas next year, we had 
an Evangelistic Clinic on February 16 at Caroleen Baptist Church. The 
pastors met in the afternoon for clinic study on "The Hows of Evange- 
lis'm." Dr. Hopkins and Rev. Bill Lamb led the afternoon session. Caroleen 
Baptist Church provided the visiting pastors and guest with the evening 
meal. The evening session was an as'sociational rally for the associate, 
and Dr. James' S. Potter oi Charlotte spoke on "Christ the Only Hope." 
Also, we had a Sunday School Rally in October with Dr. Cecil Sherman 
of Asheville speaking om the "Sunday School in the Crusade of the 
Americas." 

Our Association has accepted the date of next March 16-30 to co- 
operate in the Crusade, and the following church have voted to part'Ci- 
pate on that date: Alexander, Bethany, Campfield Memorial, Camp's 
Creek, Cane Creek, Caroleein, Clifiside, Corinth, Fairview, Florence, 
Floyd's Creek, Forest City First, Goode's Creek, Green Creek, Harmon 
Street, Haynes Memorial, Henrietta First, High Shoals, Mt. Pleasant 
(C), Mt. Pleasant (R), Peniel, Race Path, Temple, and Walls. 

As soon as a church votes to participate, the As'sociational Chairman 
of EvangeHsm should be notified.

serve in his own church) ought to know. Many years in the past, a 
statement was often made by uniformed Baptists in opposition to foreign 
missions that "it takes' 95 cents of the mission dollar to get the other 
nickel to the foreign field." Every Baptist ought to know that our For- 
eign Mission Board in Richmond, Va., with property value over

erature, Jenkins Library, deputation, recruitment, etc., amounts to 7^2 
cents out of the dollar they receive. 92J/2 cents of every dollar given to 
foreign missions lands directly on the field. Where else in any business 
can one invest a cost of $7.50 and realize a profit value of $92.50? Every 
Baptist ought to know what foreigin missions is.

HOMES FOR AGING REPORT 

The past year has been one of the most eventful years m the history 
of the Homes. Of primary significaince was the opening of the Yanceyville 
Home on November 1, 1967. 

Baptist of North Carolina nnd our association can be grateful for their 
record in ministering to the residents in their five Homes for the aging. 

38 



Minutes' of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



About 85% of the resid&nts ministered unto receive assistance through 
the love gifts of North Carolina Baptists. These love gifts from our 
Ba,ptist churches come from two maiin sources : (1) The Special Day Offer- 
ing, received on the third Sunday of February each year, from v^hich 
the Homes derive 22^^% of their total income ; (2) The Cooperative Pro- 
gram from which we receive 12^% of total income. Gifts for 1967 through 
these two sources' were at an all time high and amountod to around 
$200,000.00. 

I^et everyone who is contributing to this great area of human need 
be grateful to the Lord to be a part of a great denomination that has 
had the visiorn to plan for the aging and is moving forward in meeting 
the needs of this very deserving group.

THE INTERRACIAL COOPERATION REPORT 

There is encouragement in the matter of interracial cooperation. Aiding 
in the work with National Baptists has been the "Statement Concerning 
the Crisis in Our Nation," adopted by the Souther.n Baptis't Convention 
on June 5, 1968. Also, the literature, "We Hold These Truths," has opened 
many avenues for discussion groups to confront the problems of human 
relations within their churches and communities. 

In Jajnuary a record number of General Baptists: attended the State 
VBS Clinic at Wingate College. Four went from the Gold Hill Associ- 
ation of this area. Also, our Sandy Run Association cooperated with 
the Gold Hill Association in helping them put on their Associational 
VBS Clinic. 

Our Baptist State Interracial Department has held five confereinces 
on human relations in diflferent areas of the State during the year with 
800 in attendance. 

Thirteen small scholarships were provided this year for ministerial 
students at Shaw University, A & T University, and Southeastern Semi- 
;nary. Three new Week Day programs were held in the western part of 
the State. An increasing number of seminars, youth retreats!, institutes, 
and discussion groups are being held in churches and associations. 

The annual state conference on evangelism, being held in February 
in Greensboro, is being jointly sponsored by the two Baptis't State Con- 
ventions. Also, in keeping with the Crusade of the Americas, the Baptist 
Men and Boys ainnual convention for the first time next year will be 
jointly sponsored by the Brotherhood Department of the Baptist State 
Convention and the Layman's League of the General Baptist State Con- 
vention. This meeting- is' scheduled in V/inston-Salem, March 28-29. 

A number of college young people have been employed as summer 
workers. The Home Mis;sion Board has joined our Interracial Depart- 
ment in this.

COMMITTEE ON ORDINATIONS REPORT 

The Committee on Ordinations* examined two men for the gospel minis- 
try during the year. The first man was Brother Jack M. Upton of the 
Mountain View Baptist Church. The Smith's Grove Baptist Church, having 
called Brother Upton for pastor, requested the Mountain View Church 
to ordain him. The Mountain View Church in turn took place at the 
Bethany Church on Sunday afternoon, October 8, 1967. The Committee, 
being well pleased with Brother Upton's answers, recommended his ordi- 
nation to the Mountain View Church and the Church proceeded to 
ordain him on vSunday afternoon, October 15, at 2:30 P.M. 

The second man who was examined for the gospel minis'try was 
Brother Robert Biggerstaff of the Mt. Pleasant (R) Baptist Church. The 
High Shoals Baptist Church had called Brother Biggerstaff for pastor 
and requested the Mt. Pleasant (R) Church to ordain him. Whereupon 
the Church through the pastor, Brother Wade Bunce, requested the 
Committee to examine Brother Biggerstaff. The Committee examined 
him on Monday evening, June 17, 1968, at the Mt. Pleasant Church. Be-

SOUTH MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CAMP REPORT 

At vSouth Mountain Baptist Camp this year we had 1,992 GA's, RA's, and 
weekend campers. Out of this number there were 711 decisioms for Christ. 

42 



Minutes' of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



A good number of these were professions of faith. There were 77 at- 
tending from the Sandy Run Ass'ociation. 

The Camp had a good season this year. Through special donations 
the cabins have all been painted and repaired. Most of the bedding has 
been replaced by gift from Gardner- Webb College. 

South Mountain Baptist Camp is owned and operated by Region Eight 
which includes Sandy Run Association. It is 33 miles from Forest City, 
less than an hour's drive, all on a paved road. It is located south of 
Morgantown on old highway 18 between Morgantowm and Shelby. One 
suggested way to go is to turn at Bethel Church in EHenboro to Polkville, 
then to Caser, then to old Highway 18, turn left and it is about five miles 
north. 

Next summer the new s*wimming pool will be open for the first time. 
The lake will be used for fishing aiud boating. There are ponies to ride, 
plenty of places to hike and other recreational faciHties. 

The Camp is capable of handling over 200 campers per week. It is* also 
available for weekend Brotherhood meetnigs and other outings. In plan- 
ning for next summer, GA leaders should remember that there will 
be no GA Camp at Fruitland. 

The Camp Director has a film an the Camp and its activities' and will 
be glad to show it at any service or meeting. Write Rev. T. A. lyineberger,

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

Winning "every creature" to Christ and developing each person to 
carry out his function as a member of the body of Christ is the aim 
of state missions. 

All of state Missions is' dedicated to the worship of God and the proc- 
lamation of His Kingdom. State Missions begins as a person enters 
the door of his church. It goes down every highway and hedge, over 
every mountain, vale and plain in the state. 

Each person witnesses in his state every day of the year. 

State Missions this past year has given 800 churches building-planning 
aid, helped train 200 pastors at Fruitlaiud, and had part in training 25 
j^oung people to serve in the Baptist Youth Corps. Also, it has! aided 
in a number of mission Vacation Bible Schools. Across our State, we 
help place churches where people are. We also conduct a worship serv- 
ice at each of six beaches during this past s'lmimer through our State 
Missions ministry. 

State Missions is witnessing to many special groups, including military 
persiannel, juvenile, the deaf, migrant workers, and retired ministers. 
State Missions helps feed the hungry, physically and spiritually, and 
ministers to the stranger in our midst. It clothes the naked, aids the 
spiritually sick and visits thosie in prison. 

"Whom shall I send and who will go for us?" (Isaiah 6:8). Each per- 
son can help in the harvest in State Missiotn fields through prayer and 
giving. Twenty cents of every dollar given to State Missions! goes to 
help the preachers' school at Fruitland Bible Institute.

Dedicated State Mission money from special offerings and the Co- 
operative Program can enlighten, heal, and educate. It can save men 
from despair and suflfering. Christ can redeem men from sin through 
state missionaries'. State Mission money will encourage faith and 
brotherhood.

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 
(C. P. Report) 

vSTEWARDSHIP MEANS DIFFERENT THINGS TO DIFFERENT 
PEOPLE. To some it has no meaning at all. To others the word has 
been identified only with raising church budgets. When most of us 
think of our stewardship, we think also of the Cooperative Program. 
We are taught to be good stewards of our posses'sions. A local church 
or convention also wants to disburse its funds wisely. No better plan 
has been conceived to do this than the Cooperative Program. 

What the budget is to the local church, the Cooperative program is 
to the denomination. It supports' all our missionary causes at home 
and abroad. It is preaching the gospel; it is healing in the name of Jesus 
through hospitals and clinics everywhere; it is teaching and training 
Christian leaders for all the great tasks of kingdom endeavor. 

As our people worship with tithes' atnd ofiferings Sunday by Sunday 
and as our churches channel a worthy part of their income through the 
Cooperative Program, we enter into partnership with God and one 
another in obedience to the command, "Go . . . preach . . . teach . . ." 

It is our prayer that each church in this association will examine what 
it IS doing i,n the hght of what it should be doing for missions. We also 
pray that when this report is' made at our annual associational meeting 
next year that it can be said that every church gave through the Coopera- 
tive Program. A lost world is waiting to hear about Christ, and thousands 
die each year who do not know Him. Many have never heard that He 
came. What part will we play in making our Saviour known to the utter- 
most part of the earth? Only you can answer that question. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Bruce Christopher 




SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

"The Church Fulfilling Its Mission Through Ministry," one of the 
tasks of the Sunday School, has' been the theme of the work during 
the 1967-68 Sunday School year. 

Churches of the Association were encouraged to follow through on 
this theme m each of the meetings held. Ideas and materials to assist 
churches in the ministry to their community were presented with sug- 
gestions as HOW actions could be carried out and AVHO should carry 
them out. 

In December, the Associational Sunday School provided opportunities 
for the study of the January Bible Study book, "Studies in Euke's Gospel." 

44 



Minutes' of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



This study was for pastors and others who would teach the book in 
their churches. Dr. Joseph McClain, pastor of First Baptist Church, 
Shelby, was study leader. Gardner-Webb College served as host a^nd 
provided classroom space for this study. 

Assisting the Training Union in the As'sociational Central Training 
School, two classes were taught by Sunday School officers in the areas 
of Administrations and Methods. These classes served to give additional 
training in Sunday School work. (An obs'ervation : Steps need to be 
taken by church leaders to insure that more teachers, officers, and leaders 
participate in this annual training event.) 

Two Vacation Bible School Clinics were conducted in April, assist- 
ing churches of the association in preparing for their school. A Day clinic 
and an evening clinic provided ample qpportunity for VBS teachers to 
equip themselves' for their teaching. (An observation : Churches would 
do well to enlist teachers earlier in order that they might participate in 
these ansnual clinics. 

The As'sociation also provided a VBS Clinic, furnishing teachers and 
materials in cooperation with the Gold Hill Association. (This was found 
to be a fertile field for presenting additional leaderslhip training.) 

Fifty-seven churches reported a VBS, showing over 4,500 children 
enrolled in Bible study and other learning experiences. This represents 
a decrease of one less than last year. A mission Bible school at the 
Chapel in Forest City, enrolling 50 children, was conducted by the youth 
of the First Baptist Church. 

In September, the work of the new Suinday School year was introduced 
through the Associational Crusade of the Americas Rally. Rev. Richard 
Spencer shared some idea on the meaning of the Crusade as it relates 
to the 1968-69 Sunday school function of "A Church Fulfilling Its Mission 
Through Evangelism and World Missions." Dr. Cecil Sherman, pastor 
of the First Baptist Church, Asihville, brought a challenging address on 
the work of the Sunday School and its significance to the Crusade of the 
Americas. 

Two observations : Pastors and other elected church leaders need to 
cooperate with and show their support for all associational activities. 

Churclies would do well to have at least one worker or more from every 
age group present at all Associational Sunday School meetings. 

Respectfully subinitted, 
Tom Quick

-istiiig of five changes, for disposition by the association. The Mod- 
erator suggested that each chaiuge be voted on individually, as listed, 
'.'M(\ each on:- was approved. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON STUDY OF CONSTITUTION 

The Committee suggests the followuig changes in the Constitution: 
1. The original of Article VIT, Sectiou 1, 6, reads as follows (see 

l')68 Associationa! Minutes, page 6) : 

"Ti;is Connnilteie snail be composed of the Treasurer as Chairman, 

Moderator. Sunday School Superintendent, Trainiiug Union Director, 

W.M.U. President, Brotherhood President, Church Music Director, and 

as many ..." 

The Committee reconunends that it read as follows: 

"This C'onnnittee shall be composed of the Treasurer as Chairman, 

Moderator, Sunday vSehoo! Director, Training I'irion l)ireet(n-, W.M.U. 

Director. P>rotlicrho.od Director, Church Music Director, and as many . . 

Z. Article VH, Section 1, 10, (10), reads as ff)llo\vs (si e 1968 Assoc-

"Christian Life." Thes|c are titles of two committees whose duties are 
.'^o closely related that our Committee recommends that the two com- 
mittees be combined an.d the title of the new conunittee be :

."1. S'uee our Hai-tist State Conveintion has a Department of Interra- 
cial Coopi'ration and rmr Constitution does not provide for such a com-

ui<'n(h. that -Xrtielc Vti, Svetion 1, 10, add a eonimittee entitled "inter- 
raeiaj Cooperation." 

4. Also, since we have a Committee on South Mountaini Baptist Camp 
Csce 1968 Associational Minutes, page 17) but no provision for such a 
conunittee in the Constitution, our Committee recommends that Article 
VI r, vSectioii 1, "11. C'onnniltee on Soutii Mountain Baptist Camp" be 

24

added, and this be added too. "The Committee on Committees sliall ap- 
poimt this Committee, naming the chairman. It shall promote the Camp 
and kaep the Association informed about its progress. The chairman 
shall make a brief written report at the annual session of the Association." 

5. The original of Article V, Section 4 reads as follows: (see 1968 
x\ssociational Minutes) : "The Missionary of the Sandy Run Assoriation 
shall work with atnd assist the churches and missions of the Association 
in the promotion of their work and shall be under the supervision of the 
Associationa] Boaiid." 
Tlie Committee recommends that it reads as follows: 
"The Missionary of the vSandy Run Baptist Association shall work 
whh and assist the churches and missions of the Association in the 
promotion of their work anid shall also work with the various com- 
mittees of tlic Associational Board in an advisory capacity and shall

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 

In our world with all its confus'on, people MUST have the Bible be- 
caus|e it presents Jesus Christ as the one hope of men and nations. 
Each person must have the Bible in his own language because it speaks 
to his heart as no other language can speak. However, there is a world- 
wide shortage of Bibles and this is due to the cost of printing, which 
some countries and people are unable to pay. Even in our own America 
there are s'.ill those who do not have as much as a copy of the New 
Testament. Is it right for some of us to have two or more copies while 
some do not have one copy. 

The Bible is the essential tool of Missions and evangelism. The mis- 
sionary uses it in all of his work. The Bible itself is a missionary. It 
can go where the. human missionary cannot go. It can stay on after 
lie leaves and keep on speaking to a person's heart day by day. 

The American Bible Society is a non-profit organization serving 
churches of many denominations in the U.S.A. and aroum'd the world. 
Its main business is to translate the Bible in as many languages as 
jtossible and to give it to th'^ people at the lowest cost possible. The 
Society abvriys prints the Bible without note or comment. It also sup- 
plies Braille liibles for the blind as well as Talking Bible records and 
tape recordings. 

"Ood's Word for n New Aue" is ihe tliemc' of the program of world- 
wide missi'inarv r- Ivaince being caJ'ried on by the American Bible Society, 
in cooperalion with M other National Bible Societies around the world, 
lis aim is to i)ro\idc greatly inci" ased qnnntities of vScriptures ur- 
gently needed for iiiission work. 

Souip goals arc: 

a Rib'e for e\ et v ( hristian home 

a Testani'^nt, al least, Inr every rliristia,n 

ai i..as( a Cospe!, or other e implete bfMik of the Bible, for everyone

In 1968 Sonlhern f'a])tist rlmrches !;avp $222.0.^7 to the American 
Bibl.c Society- and ranbed firsr ainong all denoniinations. Cifts from 
all churches in the U.S.A. totaled $1,312,615.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

Our Medical Center continues a high quality prog^ram of inedical 
eare, training of medical personnel, and research in the causes and 
I'ea'.mcp.t of tJif^ diseases which aflflict us. In the face of serious finan- 
cial problems, the hospital staff i - working more dihgeiTitly than ever 
to minist'^r to our people in keeping vvith tlieir needs and to the limit 
of the hospilai's resources. 

'i'he hospital has instituted more efficient admission i>rocedin"es re- 
gardiii;;- patients' hn.anc'a] rcsou.rces and plans for pawnent of hos- 
pital bills. Trained counselors arc i.nb. rviewing patients and their fami- 
lies regarding advance payments which are now required and for get- 
ling more accurate infrrmation on those who will need help. Tn this 
^\';^^• they ar^^ a'de better to discover those patients who may be eli- 
gible fo-- medical care assistance through So'-val Services departments 
or other health agencies, and caiu start proceedings at once for getting 
thesr patients ceirtified if this has not alrcaldy been done. These agen- 
cies pay a major p.vt of the cost for a patient they certify, but not 
the total cf st, and the Moth'^r's Day Fmid nuT^t pny the balance. A 
member of the family must go to th.e agency and give the necessary 
information, and gettiing this done is often a real problem. Many of 
our pastors have helped in this connection and have rendicred im- 
portant service for the patients and the hospital. 

If it v/ere not for the help which conies from these health agencies, 
our Mother's Day Fund would not last for three months. After paying 
the difference between what the agencies pry an.d the total cost for 
thes- patients, the Mother's Day Oflferings are used to help as many 
as poss'blc of those who Ait: not eligible for cerlificaticni and who them- 

28 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



selves cannot pay tiie total cost of their care. First preference must be 
given to those patients whose needs are greatest and most urgent. The 
free care the liospital gives must now be limited in keeping with funlds 
provided for this purposic, however, because the hospital cainnot con- 
tinue to go deeper in debt. 

It is important that our people understand that ad of the A[othe,r's 
Day Offerings and designated gifts for this ministry are used for this 
purpoat: alone, and the hospital makes them go as far as it possibly 
can. The trustees and Administration of the hospital are most grateful 
for the fine cooperation our pastors arul our people arc giviing, and 
they earnest'y solicit our understanding and generous support.

BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT FOR 1969 

C. GoAlon Maddrey, Executive Secretary 

Thi€ North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc., renders a service to • 
(1) God, (2) individual Baptist, vAid (3) Baptist agencies and insti- 
tutions. Every Baptist has an opportunity througli his Foundation to 
provide for continuing stewardship in the agencies and institutions im 
^vhich he has an interest. 

The Foundation has again this year put particular interest upon the 
making of wi^ls. vSeveral of oiir church'es have used the facilities of 

29 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



the Foundation to conduct Will iClinics -and reports from these clinics 
indicate that they were most successful. We have also had an oppor- 
tunity to counsel with many people concerning" their own wills, and 
m some instances we have provided the information and direction 
necessary for inclusion of Baptist causes in their wiU. 

The assets of the Foundation, have now reached beyond the one 
million doillar ($1,000,000) mark, including trust funds and real estate. 
Siuce the ncactivation of the Foundation, around 1962, the total assets 
liave increased from $350,000 to the present excess of slightly over one 
million. This is positive proof that the Baptists of North Carolina have 
discovered that the Foundation is really a service arm of the Baptist 
Con\ention of North Caroliina.

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 



North Carolina Baptists ,are fortunate to have one of the finest pro- 
grams in the nation for the care and development of ck pendent chil- 
Uren and for strengthening and supporting family life. Morie than 1200 
children and their families are served auinually. 

31 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



The Children's Homes, through a variety of quality services, unfolds 
(.n six campuses and through the work of regional casewoirk centers 
throughout the State. 

More requests for services are now coming to the Baptist Chiklren's 
Homes than at any time in our previous history. AH agency beds are 
iiikd anti all available money is beiing utilized. We, too, have been caught 
ni the rising costs of living and in an uiflationary economy. A wider 
variety of quality services are being demanded to meet the needs of 
children who are the products of today's complex society. Present eco- 
nomic coiilitions make it necessary to have additional operating in- 
come with which to maintain the current program before any further 
expansion of services can be considered. 

Friends of the Children's Homes, in Western North Carolina, have 
responded generously to the Founders and Builders Program to raise 
funds with which to establish the Broyhill Home to serve chii'dren in 
Western North Carolina. Sufficient funds have been given and pledged 
to purchase the land, to prepare tlie site and to construct the first two 
cottages for children. When the campus has been compleicd provision 
will have been made for four cottages for children, a multi-purpose ad- 
ministration and activities building and a home for the superintendent. 
With the support and cooperation of Baptists and other friends of the 
Homes another ministry is being developed in AsheviHe. A home in 
which to serve unwed mothers and their offspring will be opened some- 
'lime this fall. 

By the use of designated gifts and bequests from individuals and 
families, significant progress is being made. Two cottages are now 
render construction at Mills Home. A recreation building and an infirm- 
ary at Kennedy Home and two cottages for children at the Broyhill 
Home are seli« dulcd for construction during the next year. 

Contributions of our Baptist peop'e are received with 'deep appre- 
ciation. An increasing numl)er of friends are finding a rewarding stew- 
ardship opportnnlty through the establishment of trusts for the Homes 
and 1)\ means of wills and estate planning for the needs of depend- 
wil children. Members of the staff are available for consultation in 
estate [danning and the preparation of wills.

CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE REPORT 

The api)licati()n of the Christian faith to the varied problems of life 
lias been the aim of the Cliristian I^ife Commission of the Southern 
baptist Convention, and of the leadershi]) of our vState Convention iin- 
xolved in this specific area of concern. 

The i)roblenis are many. They are found in family life, race relations, 
daily work. Christian citizenship, the urban crisis, poverty, war, and 
peace, abortiom, violence an]d innnorality on television, drug addiction, 
pornography, and civil disorders, to name some of the most important. 

The Christian Life Commission is also deeply concerned about the 
matter of Extremism — l^eft and Right, in the words of Dr. Wayne 

32 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Oates "Extremism is an individual or group reaction against threat, 
the sense of threat being out of keeping with reality." Extremists, says 
the Commission, go beyand the bounds oi Hcasonable action, excess- 
ively and zealously expressing blind attachment to^ a particular point 
of view. 

Perhaps the following statement by the Commission sums up the 
matter : "Extremism to the left or to the right is a threat not only to 
our national life but alsO' to the cause of Christ and the life of the de- 
nomination. Both expressions of extremism in the church are equally 
dis"uptive aind destructive. Both have theological overtones when found 
among church members. Those of the left wouM turn the church into 
an agency of political pressure for radical restructuring of society while 
ignoring the supernatural dimension of God's saving grace in jesus 
Christ as it changes inidividuals. Those of the right declare that the 
church's concern is only for main's soul and seek to force every mem- 
ber into a rigid adherence tO' the Bible as they see it, while ignoring 
the strong, pervasive emphasis of our Lord upon a costly discipleship 
which places moral and ethical demands upon every Christian in all 
personal and social relationships. " 

It would seem that it is time for every Christian to examime his re- 
lationship with others in the light of his relationship with Christ and 
make whatever adjustments are necessary to be Christian in this area. It 
AVoulH also seem that it would be wise for every Christian to examine 
liis attitudes and relationships toward the world in the light of his re- 
lationship with Christ and app^ly his Christianity in this area as well. 
As D;r,. Stephem Olford said in one of his messages "Christianity in the 
final analysis is reacting to all of life as Christ v^ould react." If we do 
this, we can rest asured that God is pleased with and honored through, 
our lives.

CHURCH LIBRARY REPORT 

The church libra,ry is steadily growing in number and interest in 
our association. There were fourteen present for the associational train- 
i,ng program, held at the First Baptist Church in Forest City, April 
14-16, 1969. Most of the librarians attending the training program were 
beginners aili all were eager to learn about how to set up a church 
library. 

Three church librarians attended thhe Vhr'dvy Conference at Ridge- 
crest in August and two librarians attended the library program of the 
Sumday School Training Program in Morganton, September 8. 

Church librarians have the title now of Director of Library Services. 

It is our desire that every church in our association will see the need 
to include the library in the church budget for next year.

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

The year 1969 has been one of the most significant in the 136-year 
history of the Biblical Recorder. True, we cannot point tO' any spectac- 
ular gains in circulation, but each week the Recorder is r'ead by almost 
300,000 North Carolina Baptists i,n some 90,000 Ironies. For almost a 
century and a half the Recorder has played a vital role in the life of 
our cor.vention and state, and it will continue to do so. 

Our pages this year have carried a variety 'of reports of the activities 
of Baptists all across the state. Early this spring membership in our 
3,454 churches passed the one milllion mark — a historic milestoine. 
We also carried numerous stories and reports of the progress 'of the 
Crusade of the Americas. 

The first half of this year, of course, saw much of the news interest 
locuse 1 o;i the General Assembly. Possibly more than any 'other as- 
sembly to 'date, this year's session was of vital importance to Baptists 
and other Christians across our state. Because of this importance, the 
Recorder gave sp) 'cial emphasis to reportir,g moral and social issues 
being considered by the legislature. Our readers responded in mar- 
velous faslii'on, making the impact of the church felt throughout the 
state. 

Whenever si^mething signiricant v.as happening among North Caro- 
lina Baptists, our read.crs Vvcre aware of it. AVe h'ope to oflfer expanded 
coverage in the future and will always strive to improve our eflfort. 
We want tV) be good stewarils of the trust North Carolina Baptists 
have placed in us. 

Naturally, we hope that this stewardship will be rewarded with more 
participatioin in rcifdership in our churches. The Recorder should be 
in every Baptist home. 

We would like to commend the Recorder for its coverage of the 
♦^'.encral .Asscmblv and its stand on the liquor issue. It is good for Bap- 
tists to have a witness to "Stand in the gap anld fill m the hedge," where 
it counts. I trust that we will a'ways have a vo'cc in issues that tear 
•down christian principles.

CITY AND METROPOLITAN MISSIONS REPORT / 

The City and Metro]); >litan Missions l)e])artnicnt of our State Con- 
vention seeks to promote a total mission program iiu all of North Caro- 
lina. 

The projected population growth of our state reveals a need tO' reach 
more people in the days ahead with the Christian witnt^ss of our churches. 
This department is the urban missionary effort of our convention to 
assist the churclics and assoc'ations iin extending this witness. 

Metropolitan missions has three distinct phases of work: 
1. The General Urban CIhutJi and Associatiotna] ministries. 

(1) Clinrclies and a.ssi x iations have been assisted in specific urban 
needs and b^ing range planning of asso iational citv ni'uistries.

on in the Ra^eiigh Association in cooperation with the Home 
Mission Board. 

Two limited part-time programs have been launclfled this year, 
one in the Mount Z'on Association and the other in thh Cen- 
tral Association. There are many more places where this min- 
istry is ni'^eded. 

Many associations arc electing Youth and Family Committ- 
ees to perform a voluntary ministry in this phase of Christian 
work.

to help with the work among the Jews, Catholics, Christian sects 
and Nan-Evanp,eMcr/s. There are tracts and pamphlets that give help. 

CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS REPORT 

(iChristian Act'on League) 

From one stand-point this has been a good year for those who are 
deeply concerned about tlie beverage alcohol situation in North Carolina. 

The 1969 General Assembly wrestled with some issues which, if they 
iiarl passed, would have greatly liberali23cd the laws relating 'to sales

and wonill thereby have increased tlie consnmpt-om of alcohol. We re- 
joice that the General Assembly ciirfeated the follov/ing bills: 

The state-wide bill on whiskey-by-the drink. 

The !\Iecklenburg County local option bill on liquor-by-the drink. 
The ^.loore County ^ocal option bill on the same. 

The Daugh and Carson state-wide bill om all or nothing. This bill 
offered t"vo a^f^matives : total prohibition or a continu;\t:on of the present 
system plus local option on liquor-by-the drink. 

We are grateful th.at the fo' lowing bills were passed: 

1. The 'm])lied coiusent bill which calls far a mandatory loss of license 
np'>n. rcfusid to take the test for dri^'i,ng under the influence of alcohol. 

2. .V bid to increase taxrs on beer and whiskey.

REPORT ON EVANGELISM 

The sinni'taneons r:'vival meetings he'd last spring in our association, 
March 16-30, as a part of the Crusa.de of the .Americas bore evidence in 
some places of being genuine spiritual revivals. Where God's people 
sowed boimtifully, they reaped gloriously. 

As we face the future in evangcMsm, we should t'dkc luote of what 
liaiM'vned this year v.here some outstanding revivals werlr experienced. 
This ^y\^ g'\'e s(m ■ gnidelin'."s for fut'u-e plans in evangelism. 

1. In every church where an unusual revival was reported, thlere had 
been an unusual ])rayer concern and pravei- particii)ation aeross several 
nicnlhs on the ])art of the church people -- usually the leaders. This 
definitely says something to us for the future: depend upon the Hoily 
vSpirit. 

2. vSome of \ht' most i)o-werful revivals in our association starf'd among- 
the vouniy people of our churtdies. Yon.n" peoi)le arc ])rominent in luany 
places todav (mostly in workllv places), and it is encoiu-aging to know 
that whcm they offer themsel\n,>s to God to be used in His purpose, as 
many are doing, that revivals break' forth in the churches. L,et us chal- 
lenge our youth for Christ! 

Tu the light of what Ave have observled this year, here arc some 
"nuists" for the future: 

1. To seek earnestlv to be com])letely assured in our h< arts and minds 
that the only hnpe for us and all p|.'op1o is Chiast - Christ as He and 
His gospel are revealt d by the Holy Si)'rit through the Rible, 

2. To piu'pose to enga<';e (kiily in searchiu"; lh^ v'^criptures and iu pray- 
ing for sp' ritual revivals iin all our church.ts. Some have made a beginn- 

36 



Minutes of Sandy " Run Baptist Assoeiation- ^ 

ing in this vital matter and aU other Christians should join them and 
continue steadfastly therein. 

3. To proclaim faithfully "publicly and from iiouse to house" (Acts 
20:20) the glorious gospel of Christ, and to make this purpose central 
in all church plans, programs and activities.

HIGH POINTS OF THE YEAR'S WORK 

496 baptisms for the year, a gain of 27, but a ratio of 1:51. Gletnwood, 
Goode's Creek, and Pore's Ford had the fine ralio of 1 :8 Or better. 

20,085 membership, a gain of only 92, but 5,198, or Vx, were non-resi- 
dent ! 

The Sunday school roll was 13,687, a loss of 202 and the smallest roll 
in years and years and ye,ars ! 

8 churches did not report a VBS, more than for several years, but 
an enrollment of 4,772, the largest onrollment in many years. 

13 churches without a Training Uniun, a \drop of 95 in enrollment, 
but still more than in many years except for last year. 

Only 13 churches without a WMU ! Our ladies are really working! 

31 Brotherhoods reported an -enrollment of 522, and 32 churches .re- 
ported 507 RA's. 

The number of tithers have been increasing year by year. 54 churches 
Tcportcd 2,754 tithers, 5 churchies with lOO or more and one church with 
390! 

To^lai receipts were almost $1J^ million, an increase of $73,193, and ex- 
penditures were almost $100,000 over $1^ million. 

Total mission gifts amounted to $250,509, an increase of $10,598. The 
CP. (Cooperative Program) gifts were $132,197, an increase of only 
$649. The channel for carrying our mission gifts has hardly been enlarged. 

I,ook at our associational program gifts. Total gifts were 
$14,318.72 or .9% of the total expenditures. Our budget fOr 
tlie nev.' year is $16,543, over $2,200 more than was given the past year' 
Plow we wish all our churches were participating fiinancially ! Why not 
put the associational program in your church budget on the basis of 2% 
of regular cluirch offering receipts with the exception of building funds ? 
Our Home Mission Board suggests the percentage basis.

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 

We have come to the point in the life of our nation and of our de- 
nomination when our best is needed. There are at least seventy-five 
million unchurched people in our country, and pressing problems call 
us to give our Christiain witness in every area of human life and ex- 
perience. 

To a society convulsed by assassinations, riots, election, (disorders and 
other crises; to a society gaining a new awareness of its poor, its afflu- 
ence, and its loss of values. Southern Baptists were led by their Home 
Mission Board to respond during 1968 primarily through these emphases : 
ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW CHURCHES IN PROJECT 500 — 
Moire than 150 of the five hundred projections were started (30 per- 
cent of the goal within 40 percent of tlie time.) The project was slowed 
because of inadequate funds, and many of these starteid were without 
financial aid. 

PREPARATION FOR THE CRUSADE OF THE AMERICAS ~ 
Numerous preHminary meetings, such as a thousand associational rallies, 
were held. Telecasts were prepared for national release, and hundreds 
of other actions were taken to prepare for the year of witnessing in 
1969. 

A force of 2,385 missionaries serve in all fifty states, plus Panama 
and Puerto Rico. While 406 were appointed during the year, this rep- 
resents an increase of but eighty-five. Thirty-five appointees were 
US-2ers, young collegiate graduates enrolled for two years service. In 
addition, 897 college students served as student summer personnel for 
ten weeks. Most of this missionary force is jointly employed with a state 
convention, association, or local congregation.

A missioins philosophy has been communicaied by pioneer missions 
that will lay the base for new directions in keepnig with the guidelines 
c.dopted by the Board. This program reported 114 home fellowships, 
i08 new churches or church-type missions, and 5,218 additions. By 1970 
every city with 75,000 people is expected to have been entered by South- 
ern Baptists.

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING 

Never before have your Baptist Homes for tiie Aging been more 
conscious of the lyOrd's presence anid of his goodness than during tlie 
past year. On the 3jd Sunday of Februar}^ the da}^ of the special offer- 
ing, the churches oame through with an offering that promises at this 
point, to be the greatest in the Blome's history. 

The Homes shall coninue to be a relationship of trust in the lyOrd 
and faith in our Baptist people, i personaiiy hope that a continued and 
sustained effort will be made by our churches to increase and strengthen 
the amount of the two main means of support for the ministry to the 
aging — the special offering atnd the Cooperative Program. Through these 
tAVo sources, one-third of the total income for the Homes is derived, 
and 85% of the residents, who are financially dependent, are cared for 
and supplemented. 

TJiis past winter 1 with Van Carroll visited Hayes Home in Winston 
Salem. It is a deeply rewarding experience to see the light and joy of 
Christ on an older person's face and nurture tiiat North Carolina Bap- 
rist people are making possible through this ministry. A visit to one of 
the Homes will bless your life. 1 believe, therefore, that our Baptist 
people will want to have an ever-increasing part in so worthy a labor cf 
love in the Master's name. The I^ord will not fail us, and 1 also believe 
that our people will waiu to be as faithful as possible, with their sup- 
port to the Baptist Homes.

INTERRACIAL COOPERATION REPORT 

Baptist in the two state conventions have strengtliened some estab- 
lished work during 1969 while opening new avenues of service together. 

Members of the General Baptist State Conventiom shared in the an- 
nual statewide Vacation Bible School clinic at Wingate College in 
January. A new feature on the program was an inspirational message 
delivered hy Dr. L,;eon Riddick, a Negro pastor from Cliarlotte. 

40 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



For th'e second time, the two conventions co-sponsored a statewide 
conference on evangelism which was held in GreensborO'. The first state- 
wide co-sponsored Men and Boys Convention was held in Winston- 
Salem in March with a record attendance of over 7,000. 

Thie annual series of conferences on human relations was held last 
April in the areas of Durham, Chapel Hill, Ahoskie, Wilsom and Gastonia. 

Other use of N,egro talent in statewide programs : the Baptist Youth 
Convention at Lumberton last May featured Dr. F. G. Samson, a lyouis- 
ville, Kentucky, pastor. Also, Dr. and Mrs. C. R. Edwards of the First 
Baptist Church, Fayettevinc, served as the first Negro Conference lead- 
ers at Caswell Baptist Assembly during World Mission Week last June. 

Various churches and associations have encouraged the program of 
work with National Baptists on the local level. Our own association 
helped some of the Gold Hill Associational representatives go to the 
vState VBS Clinic at Wingate College early this year, and we also helped 
them put on a VBvS Chnic in their association. 

Scholarship aid was provided by our State Convention for 22 students 
in several educational institutions. 

MUSIC MINISTRY REPORT 

Dr. W. Hines Sirns, Secretary of the Church Music Departmemt, 
Nashville, said recently, that "Since practically every church utilizes 
music in some w^y, the program should be reported." According tO' the 
Uniform Church Letter to the Association in 1968, a total of 18,033 
churches reported enrolment of their music programs, but 16,590 reported 
none. 

Our percentage of churches reporting is much better than the na- 
tional average, but there is still room for improvement. Forty three of 
our churches reported their music programs while only twenty-one did 
not. V/c want to com_mend thos? who have reported and urge others 
to report their music program and enrolment at the end of each year.

SOUTH MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CAMP 1969 SESSION 

Your camp continues to be a chainnel through which God is making 
dieep and lasting impressions on thousands of young people and their 
leaders. 210 more G.A.'s and R.A.'s attended camps at South Mountain 
than last year. The G.A. attendance was 1097, R.A. was 513, and other 
groups were 666, making a total of 2276 for the summer. Hundreds 
drove in for special services. The staff is included in the attendance. 

918 responded to the challenge of the gospel, 154 of these were pro- 
fessions of faith, and 38 were volunteers for special service. 

The new $25,000.00 swimming pool was a very popular area of the 
camp twice a day. Many campers said, "It is almost unbelievable to have 
such a nice big swimming pool here in the mountains." It woul<l have 
been impossible had it not been for much free labor. The approximate 
cost of the pool was $16,000.00 Our indebtedness on the pool is $8,500.00. 
The total indebtedness on the camp n^ow is $13,000.00. 

Your camp can take care of 'over 200 weekly. The cost for 4 days was 
$9.00 and the cost for 5 days was $11.00. 

We have color slides, 8mm, and 16mm film telling the camp story. 
We would like to have the opportimity to send a team to put on a pro- 
gram about vour camp in 100 churches during the next six months.

More churches each year recognize the unique service that we render 
and put the camp in their budget. This is necessary for capital needs 
such as the pool, the roa'd etc. 

Our receipts through fees, store, mission offerings, and crafts was 
over $19,000 which was deposited into the general camp fund. We re- 
ceived $15,000 for operational fund. A complete financial statement will 
be available. 

please pray for us. Bring your young people to camp. Put us in your 
budget. We would like to pay off our debt by 1971.

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

The over all purpose of vState Missions is to lead people to Jiesus 
Christ and help develop the churches. New churches are given counsel 
and financial assistance upon request, and when the current budget 
will permit. Churches that are unable to support a full time program 
are encouraged to form a field of two or mdre churches in order to 
have a piastor live on the field, minister to them, and lead them to de- 
velop their owin resources. 

State Missions provides training for Christian vocation through Fruit- 
land Bible Institute and an ever growing number of Seminary Ex- 
tension Centers. In a ntw ministry vState Missions is ministering to 
thousands of people in Resort areas. State M'issions reaches into our 
inner cities with needed Baptist Centers; into our military areas with 
help through the local churches and specialized ministries. There is 
limited Chaplaincy ministry in correctional institutions. There is a thriv- 
ing ministry to the deaf. There is a helpful ministry to other races. 
Help is given the churches in their own stewardship programs. State 
Missions offers help in the training of deacons, Sunday School leaders 
and teachers, and BrotherhooCd leaders. Many other services which can 
be extended by the Convention to the local churches are given at the 
request of the pastor or other recognized leadership. 

The ministry of State Missions is a cooperative one. It is usually 
given in cooperation with the local church. An attempt is made to al- 
ways work in co-operation with the local Baptist Association. A ma- 
jority of our Associations are given financial aid through State Mis- 
sions. Some State Missions projects are a cooperative fimancial effort 
of the Baptist State (Convention, the Association, and the Home Mission 
Board. 

Your State Missions ministry is supported by cooperative program 
receipts and the special September offering for State Missions.

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 

When the word "stewardship" is used, most of us begin to see dollar 

signs $ $. If we think of stewardship only in terms of money, we miss 

43

the mark in our concepts. Stewardship means responsibility — responsi- 
bihty ki all areas of life. We are stewards or trustees of our time, our 
talents and our abilities. The Christian attitude is that we are responsible 
beings and must one day give account to our Alaker for all that God 
provides. 

The worship of God with tithes aiud offerings through our churches 
provides a way for expressing our gratitude for His blessings. 

Those of us who are privileged to leadership are dedicated to teach- 
ing and training in the Biblical doctrine of stewardship and try to give 
our very best to this ministry. 

In Tune our Associational Stewardship Committee had Brother Carroll 
to mail each church copies of several church budgets along with other 
budget helps in hope that they were helpful to some of our churches 
as they planned their financial program for another year. 

We had an Associational Stewardship Workshop at the First Baptist 
Church of Forest City in July. Rev. Harold White and Rev. Tom Greene 
of our State leadership led the conference. 

Materials for informing our people are produced and distributed by 
the Department of Stewardship Development. R. T. Greene is Secretary 
and Airs. Susan Cochran is office secretary. 

Teaching and training in the Forward Program, Growth in Christian 
Stewardship and Simple Plans for SteAvardship Development is the 
responsibility of Harold White and his associate, Cleve Wilkie. Mrs. 
Dorothy Smith is office secretary. 

As dedicated Christian stewards, will you try to lead your church : 

1. To use a stewardship program to help subscribe your own church 
budget. 

2. To increase the percentage of the offeriiUg plate dollar given through 
the Cooperative Program.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

"The year of transition" fPrepari.ng for the 70's) has been the theme 
of the work during the 1968-69 Sunday School year, and will continue 
during the 70's. The purpose of shaping the 70's is to have a deep con- 
viction on the part of denominational leadership that the 70's need not 
be the shape of the 60's if the church performs her mission NOW! We 
must accept during the 70's better personal understandings of the gos- 
pel and apply these insights creatively in shaping every area of life 
in our revolutionary world. 

The Associational Sunday School Officers have been learning some- 
thing about preparing for changes in the Sunday School Work during 
the 70's. We plan to pass this information on to any church iin the 
association where it is wanted. 

The purpose is One of Improvement: Traditionally churches have 
been slow to improve their patterns of communication, methods, and 

46 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



techniques. We ought not ever change our faith aind practice. But in 
other areas improvement is desperately neede!d. We must improve our 
attitudes — attitudes about the mission of the church, her methods and 
organization. We must improve our habit patterns. Habits often be- 
come ruts ; ruts become graves ; and graves are for the dead, not the 
living. We must create a habit pattern of action. Jesus came both to 
DO and to Teach. A learning experience needs to end in action, A 
w^orship experience needs to end in action. And so this is the purpose 
of the 70's promotion plan. 

The associationai officers have been learning the "changes" suggested 
by our convention. We pray that all churches will realize that we must 
have a vision for the future. We must accept changes because we are 
living in a changing world. 

One Associationai Sunday School Meeting was held this past year at 
Floyd's Creek Baptist Chucrh. Brother Sam Hargett anfd other laymen 
had charge of the meeting and it was most inspiring to hear these lay- 
men tell of the need to witness — the joy of witnessiing — and to demon- 
strate some of the ways to witness.

ASSOCIATIONAL W.M.U. REPORT 



Simplicity and flexibility have been the key words in this year of 
"Changes and Choices" in Woman's Missionary Union. I^ocal churches 
have adapted well to the changes, and we feel we have a renewed in- 
terest in and a greater challenge to the work. Instead of 'going laround 
in circles' (as Mr. CarrolJ says) the ladies choose their group of Study, 
Prayer or Mission Action. \ 

Directors report good work in Youth Organizations. AdaviUe Church 
entertained the Y.W.A. at tea Monday evening, February 10. 'It's a 
Wide, Wide YiW.A. World" was the theme, and the program, decorations, 
etc. were in keeping with this. Mrs. W. B. Roberson gave a most chal- 
lenging talk. March 10, the Y.W.A. led in an Associational Prayer Re- 
treat at Caroleen Church. G.A.'s enjoyed a Day of Retreat June 30, at 
Camp McCaU. More than 100 girls and leaders relaxied and centered 
their thoughts on missions. Many girls from Sandy Run, were attendants 
at the New Camp Mundo Vista Iduring the summer. Mrs. Alex Herring, 
Missionary from Tiwan, was the charming, inspiring speaker. The Sun- 
beam Day Camp was heUd July 26 at Mt. Pleasant (C) Church with 
sixteen churches represented and sixty-two children and adults attend- 
ing. Miss Faye Tunmire, Missionary iin the Philippines, was guest speak- 
er and helper. Thirty-sieven churches reported at least one Sunbeam 
Organization last year. 

Floyd's Creek Church hosted the Fifty-Seventh Annual W.M.U. Meet- 
ing, April 24th. The theme, "Greater lyove Hath No Man," was carried 
out in the music, worship and by featured speakers. The speakers were: 
Mrs. J. Frank Gilbreath, second vice-president of the State W.M.U. ; 
Mrs. R. Gene Summey, the Yokefelllow Center; Mrs. James T. I^achri'dge, 
Missionary in the Philippines. This challenging message inspired and 
presented needs and mission action activities related to the total church 
program. The registration was 212 representiing 29 churches. 

The Association was represented at the Metropolitan Missions Con- 
ference, Durham; State Convention, Charlotte; Various Ridgecrest 
Weeks; State W.M.U. Workshop, Hickory; Rural-Urban Workshop, 
Gardner Webb College; Mission Action Workshop, Camp Mundo Vista. 
There were 21 churches and 120 officers aind leaders attended the Asso- 
ciational Leadership Conference at the First Church; Forest City, Sep- 
tember 18th.

IN MEMORIAM 




Milan H, Ingle 
1908-1970 



In memory of Milan H. Ingle we dedicate the 1970 Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist 
Association. " 

Brother Ingle became pastor of the Wests ide Baptist Church in Forest City, his only 
pastorate, May 3, 1945, and led the congregation to relocate on South Church Street in 
1963 and to change its name to Crestview Baptist Church. He served the Church until 
his death on January 23, 1970, almost 25 years. 

He was a great and good man, a humble and faithful servant of God. He believed 
the Bible was God's divine, inspired word of truth and preached it with power and con- ] 
viction.

Reports 



BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING 

How much do we really care for our beloved elderly people of North Carolina: David 
once prayed that he not be cast off in his old age, and that he might have support when 
his strength failed him. 

The more we give the more God blesses, none can deny. And we are thankful to 
God for His blessings bestowed upon us, and also, we are thankful to our people, who 
have been very generous in their giving. 

Because you care and give, we now have five Homes for the Aging here in North 
Carolina. These Homes are: Resthaven, the Hayes Home, and Nursing Care Unit, in 
Winston Salem; the AlbermarleHome, in Albemarle; the Hamilton Home, in Hamilton; 
and the Yanceyville Home in Yanceyville. The Homes are ministering to 195 dear 
elderly people. 

An appeal was sent out before our offering in February. This appeal was heard and 
met. There was an alarming deficit in the operation of the Homes as prices increased. 
The churches gave $169,349.34, from July 1, 1969 through June 30, 1970. This offering 
exceeded all other offerings through the years. 

In the Sandy Run Association, we had thirty- seven churches giving a total of 
$2,578.03 from July 1, 1969 through June 30, 1970. There are twenty seven churches 
here that did not report any gift to the Homes. 

Let us allurge our churches to give more this year. It is urgently needed as the cost 
of living keeps going up. More room is needed to take adequate care of our beloved 
elderly people. Surely, we care and want to give? We also thank God, for those who 
minister to these elderly people.

Clarence Bobbitt 

CHRISTIAN LIFE AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS 

During the past year, many materials on applied Christianity have been made avail- 
able to Baptists in Sandy Run Association through articles provided by the Christian 
Life Commission of Southern Baptist Convention and published in the Biblical Recorder 
and other Southem Baptist Agency publications. Ten new titles in the "Issues and 
Answer" series on subjects of abortion; black power; civil disobedience; drugs; ex- 
tremism; guaranteed income; totalitarianism; urban crisis; violence; and law, order 
and justice have been written and are available through the Commission literature pro- 
gram. Ten additional pamphlets in this Series will soon be available on the following 
subjects: aging; capital punishment; consumer credit; generation gap; open housing; 
polution; population explosion; revolution; sex education; and taxation. The Commis- 
sion has already some 70 tracts in print, for helping churches emphasize the practical 
dimensions of the Christian faith. We urge you to make use of this excellent material 
by securing copies on the subjects most relevant to the need of your church and com- 
munity. 

Your committee chairman attended the Commission's National Conferenceon ex- 
tremism, authentic Christian morality, drugs and Christianity and sexuality. Tapes 
and printed materials from this conference are also available for church or individual 
use. 

Your committee urges you to be aware of the growing drug traffic in our area and 
to seek to educate your youth so that they will not become involved. The pamphlet 
mentioned above on drugs is excellent. 



25 



All these issues, on which materials are available, should be matters of concern 
to Christians if we truly apply Jesus 's teachings to daily living and we urge you to be 
aware and concerned about them. Be concerned enough to use your Christian influence 
to guide your families ^nd to assist your church and community in developing Christian 
morality, private and public, which will substantially undergird our total Southern Bap- 
tist witness for Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs, James F. Marchman 

BIBLICAL RECORDER 

More than ever before. North Carolina Baptist need a dependable source of infor- 
mation. It is difficult these days to get an honest and accurate report on iinportant 
issues. 

In some cases, half truths and rumors are circulated, some of them designed to 
embarrass and ridicule Baptists. Since it takes so long for truth to catch up with error, 
some of these impressions in people's minds are'never corrected. This makes progress 
and unity more difficult. 

For 137 years. North Carolina Baptists have had the BIBLICAL RECORDER as a de- 
pendable source of information. Week by week it goes into the homes of nearly 90,000 
families, striving to speak the truth in love. 

In the past year, the RECORDER was pleased to have had a part in the election of 
Dr. Carl Bates of Charlotte as president of the Southern Baptist Convention. A RE- 
CORDER editorial endorsing him was considered a factor in his election on the first 
ballot at Denver. It is an honor to have the convention president from our state. This 
is just one example of the influence the RECORDER has had in the past year. 

Looking to the future, the RECORDER promises to continue its fight against liquor 
by the drink, even in the face of strong opposition from those who are pushing for a 
greater flow of liquor in our state. If your church is not sending the RECORDER to every 
home, try doing this for the coming year so your members can receive the full story 
on the 1971 General Assembly. 

Your church would not think of trying to carry out its mission without literature 
devoted to the Sunday School, Church Training, WMU, Brotherhood and all other church 
organizations. The RECORDER is just as important and should be in the budget just as 
this literature is. The cost is only 4<}, a week, a penny less than a post card. Your 
church is the loser by not taking this step. Won't you do it this coming year?

EOREIGN MISSIONS 

Foreign Missions were born in the heart of God - "For God so loved the world. . 
commanded by the risen Christ - "Go ye therefore...," and taught by precept and 
example in the Bible - "Ye shall be witnesses unto me " 

To reaffirm its strong commitment to the task of world missions, some effort was 
made by this committee through the media of spoken and written announcements to 
emphasize Foreign Mission Day, theWeek of Prayer for Foreign Missions and the Lottie 
Moon Christmas Offering. 

Dr. Baker J. Cauthen stated, "The call for 5,000 missionaries is a summons to 
prayer-prayer for resources to grow in order that a new thrust in worldwide evange- 
lization may occur. A new horizon in foreign missions can never be attained apart 
from growth at the home base in evangelism, church extension, Christian education, 
theological training, and every aspect of church development." 



26 



If each Baptist in our association cared to be "where the action is," he would find 
ways to accept the challengeof" the forward thrust of Christian witness to the ends of 
the earth" as expressed so committedly by Missionary J. Howard Teel of Pakistan's 
East Wing. Mr. Teel declared, '*In American churches and religious literature much is 
being said about Christian social concern and social action. Very gradually Baptist 
churches are developing a theology and practice of Christian social action to encom- 
pass the whole of man and his society. As the foreign missionary tries to minister to 
the spiritually poor by helping to strengthen churches and by preaching the gospel, he 
becomes increasingly burdened for physical, social, and economic poverty. In telling 
of our work missionaries have always illustrated vividly back home that one cannot 
convey Christ's love effectively to persons who are too hungry to think, too sick to 
wonder about tomorrow, or too weary to care. Christianity rests upon social service. 
Evangelism and Christian social action must be united in winning and redeeming the 
whole man."

Mrs. J.D. Cooley 

BROTHERHOOD 

As we come to the close of our Church year, I want to thank all of the Brotherhood 
Officers for a job well done. We accomplished some of our goals, but I feel there is 
much more that needs to be done. 

Our Brotherhood Workshop at the Sandy Mush Church on October 1st was a rewarding 
experience, with many of our churches represented. 

A special "Thanks'* to Rev. Ed Bullock and his fine staff for all they did to make 
this a success. 

Our Prison Mission work at the Spindale Prison was a rewarding experience, I'm 
sure we will never forget. 

A special "Thanks" to the Brotherhood of the First Church of Forest City for their 
mission work at the prison. 

To Rev. Van Carroll, I'll always be grateful for the help he gave me. What could 
we have done without him being our pillow to lean on? 

May God bless each one of you as we work to accomplish more in the coming year. 
Let us pray for our new officers as they undertake the important job to make our Asso- 
ciational Brotherhood a mission minded organization for all men.

Ben F. West, Director

ASSOCIATIONAL W. M. U. 

Sandy Run W.M.U. has entered the '70's reaffirming faith in the gospel truths and 
expressing these truths in our ministry and living. 

Training and preparation for "Shaping the ' 70' s has claimed much time. The Direc- 
tor and W.M.S. Director attended a two-day training session in Ashville in January. 
February an Associational Clinic was held - Miss Bernice Popham leading the W.M.U. 
Conference. This conference had the largest attendance of any of the church organiza- 
tions with 30 churches represented. Four Council members attended the Church Leader- 
ship Conference in Charlotte, April 2. On April 18 four Council members went to the 
Mission Action Workshop in Greensboro. Associational leaders were 100 per cent at- 
tending the State Workshop August 28-29 at Camp Mundo Vista. Leadership Training 
for local officers was given September 14 and 17 at Horence Church. There were 137 
enrolled, 24 churches represented and 82 completed the courses. 

Responding to a request from the Associational Missionary, the W.M.S. solicited

termining the amount of insurance coverage, the patient is notified of the differance 
which he is expected to bring when he enters the hospital. An effort is made to counsel 
with all patients who need financial aid and assist them in getting help. 

The heart of the hospital's ministry has been to care for the needy sick and last 
year it ministered to 5,225 Service Patients for 47,499 days of hospital care. Free care 
amounted to more than a million dollars. North Carolina Baptists provided $565,000 
of this amount - $237,000 through the Cooperative Program and $328,000 through the 
Mother's Day Offering. 

Fifty-four churches in the Sandy Run Association contributed $6,592.15 through the 
Mother's Day Offering. Eight churches failed to give anything. Thirty- three churches 
increased their giving this year through our Mother's Day Offering making it a larger 
offering than the year before. The need is still great. Thank you for your increased 
giving.

STATE MISSIONS 

The over all purpose of State Missions is to lead people to Jesus Christ and help 
develop the churches. New churches are given counsel and financial assistance upon 
request, and when the current budget will permit. Churches that are unable to support 
a full time program are encouraged to form a field of two or more churches in order 
to have a pastor live on the field, minister to them, and lead them to develop their 
own resources. 

State Missions provides training for Christian vocation through Fruitland Bible 
Institute and an ever growing number of Seminary Extension Centers. In a new minis- 
try State Missions is ministering to thousands of people in Resort areas. State Mis- 
sions reaches into our inner cities with needed Baptist Centers; into our military areas 
with help through the local churches and specialized ministries. There is limited 
Chaplaincy ministry in correctional institutions. There is a thriving ministry to the 
deaf. There is a helpful ministry to other races. Help is given the churches in their 
own stewardship programs. State Missions offers help in the training of deacons, 
Sunday School leaders and teachers, and Brotherhood leaders. Many other services 
which can be extended by the Convention to the local churches are given at the re- 
quest of the pastor or other recognized leadership. 

The ministry of State Missions is a cooperative one. It is usually given in co- 
operation with the local church. An attempt is made to always work in cooperation 
with the local Baptist Association. A majority of our Associations are given financial 
aid through State Missions. Some State Missions projects are a cooperative financial 
effort of the Baptist State Convention, the Association, and the Home Mission Board. 

Your State Missions ministry is supported by cooperative program receipts and the 
special September offering for State Missions.

MUSIC MINISTRY 

For the past year a number of those ministers of music who are in full time and 
part time service have led in music schools through-out our Association. This year 
we felt it to be more effective to have individual leaders participate in the whole as- 
sociation. It hasbeenveryrewardingtoseeall our churches grow in the area of music. 

A good number of choirs from our Association participated in the Regional Music 
Festival at Spencer Baptist Church, February 26, 1970.

STEWARDSHIP 
of Christians is the greatest hindrance to the Church's progress 



30 



Baptist Churches work together in a great spirit of co-operation. We have the Co- 
operative Program through which our churches support a world mission program. This 
is the best way that churches have ever had for the preaching of the Gospel to a lost 
world. Through the Cooperative Program our churches support the whole program of our 
Baptist work in our world. 

On July 28, a Stewardship Conference was held at the Florence Baptist Church. Rev. 
E.C. Wilkie led in this Conference. Stewardship instmctions were given and steward- 
ship tracts were distributed. Your Stewardship Committee urges all the churches in the 
Sandy Run Association to promote a stewardship program, and seek to enlist every 
member in tithing, and honouring God with his income through the church. Too, we 
earnestly urge all our churches in our Association to support the Cooperative Program. 
There is strength in unity, but we do not get very much done alone. 

Jesus said, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore 

and teach all nations, baptizing them , Teaching them to observe ... . 

The greatest and most effective way that we have is through our Cooperative Program. 
We urge all churches in the Sandy Run Association to re-study their Stewardship Pro- 
gram, and increase their gifts through the Cooperative Program, thereby supporting 
all our causes for our Lord Christ.

COMMITTEE ON INTERRACIAL COOPERATION 

There are a variety of attitudes toward an all inclusive ministry. Some churches 
seek enthusiastically to evangelize and witness to people of all races and cultures. 
Other refuse to allov/ their pastors to mention the need for better race relations in the 
community. 

Our state Department of Interracial Cooperation has as its primary purpose the 
promotion of better relations and cooperation with National Baptists in North Carolina 
in their efforts to reach all people with the gospel of Christ. 

Some progress is being made. 63 National Baptists, representing 17 of their 57 as- 
sociations in North Carolina, attended our statewide Vacation Bible School Clinic at 
Wingate College last January. A Seminary Extension class enrolled 35 ministers in 
Rocky Mount last spring. 180 ministers were enrolled in classes in Shaw University 
during the year. Five conferences on human relations were held in various areas of the 
state. Two of these conferences were put on by the leaders in the New South River and 
Union Associations, assisted by our state Interracial Department. 

Scholarship aid was provided 23 students in several institutions the past year. 
Also, during 1970 the department appointed 28 youngpeople and adults who served as 
summer missionaries in various positions such as conducting Vacation Bible Schools 
that reached over 4,800 with 100 profess ions of faith, serving in Bible camps and youth 
groups in several places over the state. 

There are five or s be who serve in and with the department over the state giving as- 
sistance to work in addition to the Secretary.

CITY AND METROPOLITAN MISSIONS DEPARTMENT 

The purpose of the City and Metropolitan Missions Department Ls to strengthen 
and assist churches in extending their missionary outreach. 

During 1970 an Urban Seminar was held at Southeastern Seminary. A state-wide 
Metropolitan Missions Conference was held in Winston-Salem with great success. A

COMMITTEE ON ORDINATIONS 

The Committee on Ordinations examined four men for the gospel ministry during 
this pa^t year. 

The committee met on Jan. 3 for the purpose of examining Brother Clarence Ran- 
dolph for ordination and the following day the New Bethel Church proceeded with the 
service. The candidate had the distinction of not only being a member of the New 
Bethel Church but also to be called to service as pastor of this church. 

On February 14, the committee met to examine Brother Boyce Gregory for the minis- 
try. After questioning he was recommended to the church of which he was a member, 
the Goode's Creek, for ordination. On February 15 the church ordained him. He had 
been called to the Crestview Church. 

On May 8 the committee was called together for the purpose of questioning Brother 
Joe Forbes. After examination, he was recommended to the Bethel Church for ordina- 
tion. The ordination was held on May 17. Brother Forbes had been called to the Calvary 
Church. 

On July 18, the committee met again. This time we examined Brother Earl Kelley. 
After proper questioning he was recommended to the Goode's Creek Church for or- 
dination. The ordination took place on July 19. Brother Kelley was called to the Faith 
Church.

CHURCH LIBRARY 

The year has been good for church libraries in our association. Many new ones have 
been set up and old ones revamped. 

The Associational Librarian was able to attend the area conference in Asheville, 
on the Directions for the 70* s. 

There were nineteen director of library services secretaries present for the associ- 
ational training clinic held at the First Baptist Church in Forest City in April. 

The Associational Librarian was able to attend all of the Library Conference at 
Ridgecrest in June. One other director and one worker attended part of the conference.

It is through our libraries that the best Christian literature is available.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

In this report we are dealing with Christian higher education, the colleges and uni- 
versities of our state and Southern Baptist Conventions. 

Enrollment for special Christian service in our state and Southern Baptist schools 
last year were 7,070 young men and young women. 3,671 of these were ministerial stu- 
dents, 860 home and foreign mission volunteers, 610 education volunteers, 853 church 
mission volunteers, and 1,081 who have volunteered for some category of Christian 
vocational services. 

The total enrollment last year in the schools in our state was as follows: Camp- 
bell College - 2,306; Chowan College - 1,333; Gardner-Webb College - 1,461; Mars 
Hill College - 1,294; Meredith College - 1,142; Wake Forest University - 3,210; and 
Wingate College - 1,607, making a total of 12,353 students. More than 600 of these 
have dedicated their lives to special Christian service. 

We have a special interest in Gardner-Webb College because of its relationship and 
nearness to our association. It needs our interest and support in a special way in these 
days of transition from a junior to a senior college. The way is clear now for it to be- 
come a four year accredited college next spring. 

Of the more than 1,500 students at Gardner- Webb this fall, there are 99 ministerial 
students, 14mission volunteers, 15 church music, and 26 religious education. Gardner- 
Webb had more ministerial students as a three year college than any other Baptist col- 
lege in our state last year. 

To help ministerial students, Gardner- Webb gives a $200.00 scholarship to each 
full time student. Also, in cooperation with the churches in neighboring associations 
the CoUege sponsors Ministerial Education Day when students go into churches that 
have invited them to participate in the services. In addition, a Pastoral Intern Program 
is being carried on in a few churches. 

Pray for and give to Gardner- Webb. Rem ember this fine College on Baptist College 
Day next June 20.

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONARY'S 

The past year seems like the closing of an era and the beginning of a new one. 
Frustrations have been great with the changes in all of our organizations and literature. 
However, we believe there is a great, future ahead. 

The Associational WMU has done a admirable work. We take our hats off to these 
leaders. They have gone to clinics and workshops and have done an outstanding job in 
training the local church leaders. 

We have great confidence that the new year is going to find us making progress in 
all our organizations. If we don't, there isn't much for us to do but to sing a dirge and 
hold requiem. But by God's grace we aren't going to let that happen. 

The missionary's activities were as follows: He delivered 23 messages, taught 
Sunday School classes, visited in most of the churches and in at least 179 services, 
presented pictures 12 times, helped in a ten-day VBS, helped ordain six ministers, 
held 188 or more conferences and a few telephone conferences, mailed 12 issues of 
bulletins containing 8,716 copies and 8,356 letters and cards. Also, he attended 24 or 



33 



more associational meetings of various kinds and 17 regional and state meetings. In 
addition, he was at Fruitland a week for Associational Missionaries' Conference, com- 
muted to Ridgecrest for most of a Sunday School Week and most of Home Missions 
Week.

ASSOCIATIONAL FOUNDATION COMMITTEE 

The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc. has tripled its assets during the past 
eight years. 

Since the Foundation was reactivated in 1966, assets have increased from $350,000 
to more than one million dollars. This includes trust funds and real estate. 

THE FOUNDATION advances the Kingdom of God in two major ways: by serving 
individuals and by serving Baptist agencies and institutions. This includes the Co- 
operative Program, Missions, Higher Education, the Baptist Hospital, and Baptist Home 
for the Aging. 

Special emphasis are on making trusts and wills. 

Many churches have used the facilities of the Foundation to conduct Will Clinics. 

THE FOUNDATION also has an opportunity to counsel with many people concern- 
ing their own wills, and in some instances has provided the information and direction 
necessary for inclusion of Baptist causes in their will. 

THE BAPTIST FOUNDATION has had a most successful year, is on the move, and 
is rendering service to individual Baptists in a concrete way.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Under the leadership of the Holy Spirit through the teaching of Christ, North Caro- 
lina Baptists, eighty- five years ago, launched a Christian ministry of child care. This 
has grown considerably and is widely recognized for its qualities of service and pio- 
neering spirit. Sons and daughters of the Children's Homes are scattered throughout the 
world. They are actively engaged in all walks of life and are making a significant con- 
tribution to the uplift of mankind as a result of their early Christian training. 

Our child care program, through a variety of quality services, is recognized as a 
family service agency. This is made possible by well trained and professional staff 
who provide leadership for group care programs, foster home care, family services, 
consultation with churches in preschool programs and planning for higher education 
of children who have been in care. This program unfolds on six campuses and through 
the work of regional casework centers throughout the state. 

Friends of the Children's Homes, in Western North Carolina, have responded gen- 
erously to the Founders and Builders Program to raise funds with which to establish 
the Broyhill Home to serve children in Western North Carolina. Sufficient funds have 
been given and pledged to purchase the land, to prepare the site and to construct the 
first two buildings. Two cottages for children are now under construction and are 



37 



scheduled to be ready for use next spring. When the campus has been completed pro- 
vision will have been made for four cottages for children, and administration build- 
ing and a home for the superintendent. 

The contribution of our Baptist people through the Cooperative Program, the 
Thanksgiving Offering and special gifts are essential to our continued operation and 
are received with deep appreciation. An increasing number of friends are finding a re- 
warding stewardship opportunity through the establishment of trusts for the Homes 
and by means of wills and estate planning for the needs of dependent children. Mem- 
bers of the staff are available for consultation in estate planning and the preparation 
of wills.

EVANGELISM 

As we come to the close of another associational year, we bow our heads in grati- 
tude for what God has accomplished through our humble efforts. We gratefully thank 
him for the souls that have been won to him during this year. 

Many things go to make up Evangelism: praying, witnessing, visitation. Preaching, 
music, and instructions for living are just to mention a few. Our churches must put 
forth a special effort to train our members as to their part in evangelism. 

In associational evangelism a strong emphasis was placed upon: Shaping the 70*s 
through Evangelism, Strength for Living Revivals, and Youth Evangelism. Some of our 
churches across the state experienced outstanding revivals as a result of dependence 
upon the Holy Spirit, genuine prayer, careful planning and involvement of adults and 
youth in witnessing. 

As we look forward to another year there are important things planned in the field 
of Evangelism. The Statewide Evangelism Conference will be held at War Memorial 
Auditorium and Greensboro Coliseum on February 1-2, 1971. The closing session will 
be a Youth Evangelism Night in Greensboro Coliseum with Dr. Leighton Ford of the 
Billy Graham Association as the featured speaker. 

Many of our churches have made progress in the field of Evangelism during the 
year. Let us also stress the fact that the need is still great in our individual churches 
and our association for the growth in Evangelism. Evangelism is the heart beat of 
God's work. If we follow the New Testament teaching we must endeavor to put evan- 
gelism in the foreground. To let Jesus Christ work through us to evangelize the world 
is our greatest privilege as a Christian. 

Let me challenge you to stress the part of the individual as a personal witness in 
winning this generation to Christ.

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

Last year the American BibleSociety distributed more than 50,000,000 Bibles, Tes- 
taments, portions, and selections in the U.S. 

If this were all the Society accomplished it would have been a great ministry. But 
there is more. 

And Southern Baptist through the contributions of individual churches have helped 
make possible this "more." Other ministries are: 

A five-volume Braille edition of the New Testament in Today's English Version is 
produced for the blind. 

Two out of every three men and women serving in the Armed Forces received on 
request a free copy of Scripture as a gift. 

Requests for GOOD NEWS FOR MODERN MAN, the New Testament in Today's 



38 



English Version, continue unabated - with the total printing nearing 20 million. One 
large order from Texas Baptists a year ago required 25 railroad cars for delivery. 

Efforts were made not only to distribute the Bible, but also to encourage its read- 
ing through programs such as Worldwide Bible Reading (from Thanksgiving to Christ- 
mas). 

Translation of the Bible continued. By last year at least one book of the Bible has 
been published in 1,392 languages or dialects. 

Almost fifty percent of the total World Service Budget of the United Bible Societies 
was supplied by the American Bible Society. These are funds for world needs outside 
the U.S. 

Southern Baptists have contributed to the work of the American Bible Society; they 
have also profited from the Society (ministry in countries overseas where we have 
mission work, and in the U.S.) 

No task in the world is more important than reaching every man with the printed 
Word of God. The American Bible Society is well equipped to do the job. But, it needs 
and calls for the dedicated help and support of millions of Americans whose gifts will 
undergird its mission and message.
